Dinner & Wine with Jean-François Bourdy

Dinner & Wine Pairing with Jean-François Bourdy at The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet

Legendary 15th-Generation Winemaker Hosts Intimate Event At Randolph Street’s Acclaimed Wine Bar and Bistro


CHICAGO – OCTOBER 17, 2017 – The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet will host the legendary Jean-François Bourdy of Caves Jean Bourdy in Jura, France for a rare and special evening on Thursday October 26.


The event will take place from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m., with a reception in the Skylight room, followed by an elegant four-course meal paired with selections from the wines of Domaine Jean Bourdy.


The wines of Domaine Jean Bourdy are unique and rare in the world of fine wine.   The domaine was created between 1475 and 1500 and the brothers Jean-Philippe and Jean-François represent the 15th generation to maintain the family legacy. Tucked away in a corner of the leafy village of Arlay in Western Jura, the working winery has been designated as a living library but the French government, honored for its longevity and its winemaking culture.


The wines of Bourdy are completely traditional – sparkling, still, vin du voile, distilled. How to describe the wines? They taste of sunlight and earth and of time. They are wise when they are new; they are forever young when they are old.
