Our featured wine of the week: March 12th
Jean Bourdy Cote du Jura Rouge 2014
Caves Jean Bourdy is one of the oldest domaines in the Jura. Created in the late 1400’s, the Domaine is now run by brothers Jean-Phillipe and Jean-François, the 15th generation of winemakers at this estate. The Bourdys grow their vines on 10 hectares of land. The Domaine was certified biodynamic in 2006, and the combination of some of the best terroir in the Jura and careful and patient winemaking results in wines that thoroughly express the land on which it is grown.
This is a blend of equal parts Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau. Like most Jura reds it is lighter in color. The wine spends for years post fermentation in old oak barrels. Its a great cheese wine and has more of a savory flavor than that of pure red fruits.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
