Jean Bourdy Wine Dinner
september 27th, 2019
Join us for our next winemaker’s dinner with Jean Bourdy from Jura. Jean Bourdy will be educating guests with his estate’s wines while enjoying an intimate family style feast by Chef Brittanny Anderson. Tickets are $100 not including tax and limited seating.
The Bourdy family (same family) has been in the wine growing/making business since 1475. Their estate is just east and south of Cote D'Or in the Jura region. They grow Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard. What matters is this: they make some of the world's greatest age-worthy wines at the world's lowest prices.
Many critics compare Bourdy's red (a blend of pinot noir, trousseau and poulsard) and white (chardonnay) to the great wines from Burgundy (Montrachet, Gevrey and Chambolle are often evoked). And while Bourdy's wines may be as great (if not more so at times), and often similar to those from Burgundy, it is not Bourdy's intention to imitate. These wines stand alone in their expression of varietal and place and demand appreciation sans comparison.
