France Travel

Chateau Chalon

Before our visit, we’d never heard of Jura, Jura wines or Chateau-Chalon. Pictures of the village were featured in a German motorcycle magazine so we decided since it wasn’t too far away, we’d take a trip out there to see if the area lived up to the hype. Voted one of the 100 most beautiful villages in France by the Ministry of Culture, the rustic medieval town of Chateau-Chalon sits nestled atop a hill, surrounded by vineyards below and farmlands, mountain lakes and breathtaking waterfalls only a few kilometers away.

Château-Chalon is located in the Jura wine region of eastern France. Chateau-Chalon is known for producing Vin Jaune (Yellow Wine), a type of white wine that must only use the Savagnin grape. The wine is bottled in a 62 cl. specially shaped bottle called, clavellin. They say that the size of the bottle is so, because the wine must age exactly 6 years and 3 months before it’s ready for bottling. In this period of time, 62 cl. is what’s left of a liter so the bottle accommodates the remaining wine according to tradition as well as legal specifications.

France is a beautiful country, filled with breathtaking landscapes and magnificent storybook villages. The parts of the country that were untouched by the war are like stepping into a time machine, where things still function the way they always have and people do what they’ve always done. No one seems eager to change things and frankly, you can’t blame them. At least to an outside observer, many of these villages appear to boast a life of tranquility, beauty and exquisite cuisine. Chateau-Chalon was no exception, where the food, wine, lodging and landscape were all divine.

      Hello there – sorry for the late reply. Can you try again? I think the original pictures were perhaps too big. I’ve tried compressing them so it should work better now. Please let me know. Thanks!

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
