Vin Jaune bottle

100 % Savagnin, the only vine variety authorized for this wine. Savagnin is a typical Jura variety, flourishing on its grey marl and ripening slowly. This demanding, patient vine variety is the best type for oxidative ‘film’ maturation.

The 2010 Vin Jaune is rock star stuff made from 100% Savagnin that saw a short maceration followed by 6 years (and three months) in older barrels. A sherry-like nose of toasted nuts, wood smoke, cheese rind, and beautiful golden fruits all flow to a medium-bodied Vin Jaune that packs plenty of oomph and acidity as well as fruit. It makes you salivate and will be a great aperitif.
  • Winemaking

    It is thus aged at least 6 years and three months, without intervention, but with a regular follow-up and an attentive eye. This process, which respects the natural evaporation of the wine, causes the creation of a thin film of yeasts on the surface.

  • Nose

    Contains a range of aromas: cooked apple, curry, saffron and walnut.

  • Palate

    Its mouthfeel has a lively, powerful and well-formed attack. The mouthfeel confirms the aromas in the nose, providing a remarkable range of flavours: fresh walnut, curry, green apple, dried fruit and saffron. A grandiose finish.
