The Côtes du Jura Tradition from Berthet-Bondet consists of 80% Chardonnay and 20% of the native Jura grape Savagnin, a Traminer variant that is not fragrant at all. The wine is matured for two years in 228 liter barrels, in which a yeast flora forms, under which the wine slowly matures oxidatively. With ideal storage, the winery gives it a lifespan of up to 30 years. This is an announcement, but the 2012 vintage tried in 2020 showed no maturity or even age, so we do not doubt it.
The Vin Jaune is the flagship of the Jura wine region, the Chateau-Chalon (a designation of origin, not a winery!) is considered the best among these yellow wines. The aroma is reminiscent of dry sherry, but it is much fresher and less alcoholic because it is not fortified. Vin Jaune can easily last for decades.
The 2013 Château-Chalon by Domaine Berthet-Bondet is the first vintage of the estate to be certified organic. It is one of the best wines of this origin, and in Parker's Wines Advocate 96/100 points have already been awarded for former vintages. This wine is aged for 6 years under lees before it goes on sale. A lifespan of 50+ years is not an issue with proper storage.
