Since 1579, over 15 generations, this family has farmed the Jura lands and produced wines in the Jura tradition. It was not until 1990 that Jean-François and Jean-Philippe Bourdy decided to take over the reins of the estate. They quickly expanded the estate from 4 to 10 hectares, converting the entire estate to organic and biodynamic farming. Since 2018, Laura has taken over the estate, blending tradition and innovation.
Location of the Domaine
Located in the Revermont region, in the heart of the Jura, near the commune of Arlay, Domaine Jean Bourdy covers 10 hectares. The vines face mainly west and southeast. The soils are mainly clay-limestone, with limestone, red clay, white marl and blue marl. All Jura grape varieties are planted, including Trousseau, Pinot Noir, Poulsard, Savagnin and Chardonnay.
The wines produced here respect Jura tradition, with a touch of innovation. Domaine Bourdy wines include Crémant du Jura, Côtes-du-Jura, Château-Chalon and Arbois. Domaine Jean Bourdy is particularly renowned for its Château-Chalon, a benchmark in the appellation, produced from Savagnin grapes and with exceptional ageing potential of up to 50 or 60 years. On the red side, Côtes-du-Jura wines are made from a blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard, using indigenous yeasts and aged for 2 years in old oak barrels. White Côtes-du-Jura are made from a single grape variety: Chardonnay or Savagnin.
