Tasting Notes

Bourdy Savagnin undergoes a distinctive and traditional winemaking process that sets it apart. The magic unfolds in centuries-old oak barrels, where the wine undergoes a long, oxidative aging period, often lasting several years. This unique aging process develops the wine's complex flavors and distinctive character. A veil of yeast, known as "flor," forms on the surface, imparting nutty, oxidative notes while preserving the wine's acidity. The result is a truly singular Savagnin that marries tradition and terroir in every sip.

Domaine Bourdy

Since 1579, the Bourdy family has been dedicated to cultivating the Jura lands, producing traditional wines that have been cherished for generations. Today, under the capable stewardship of Laura Bourdy, the 16th generation of the family, the Domaine has continued to evolve. Laura, armed with an oenology degree from Dijon, Burgundy, has infused a sense of fun and adaptability into the Domaine's winemaking philosophy. Committed to ecological sustainability, the Bourdy estate transitioned to biodynamics in 2006 and achieved the prestigious Demeter label in 2010. Their collection of rare and esteemed Grands Crus offers a glimpse into history, with vintages that continue to impress with their enduring youth and finesse.
