Chateau Chalon 2010 Vin JauneTabula Rasa
Château–Chalon is a 50–hectare hillside in Jura, one of the appellations allowed for Vin Jaune. Jean Bourdy owns half a hectare in the appellation, out of the family’s total vineyard holdings of ten hectares.
Amazing complexity and intensity here - the initial wave of sherried, yeasty notes gives way to a rich layer of Indian spices and umami characteristics that are immediately obvious again on the palate, finishing on more herbal tones almost reminiscent of incense. The taste then lingers for what seems an age, an absolute pleasure!
