January 12th, 2014-Les Chais de Vieux Bourg- After a very long day of driving in Alsace and meeting with super secret producers to be named later, we arrived in Jura at Les Chais de Vieux Bourg about an hour late. Our hosts, graciously cooked us, get this, a 13 course meal that took 3 days to prepare! The expertly course after course with their stunning and unique wines. Ludwig and Nathelie Bindernagel, owners of Les Chais de Vieux Bourg love o eat and enjoy their wines with friends and family, we felt like we fell int that category immediately. The next day, albeit a little earlier than we would have all preferred, we walked through his vineyards and tasted his stunning and singular wines. Vin Jeune may be what they’re best known for, but Poulsard, Pinot Noir, chardonnay, savagnin and blends and different versions and bends of these varieties make u the entirety of their production. Their notoriety certainly comes from the yellow wines, but the traditional wines are stunning and surprising. They farm Biodynamically, and you can really sense the difference.
