Vin Jaune du Jura 2013  (62cl / 14%)

Vin Jaune (French "yellow wine") is a special and characteristic type of white wine made in the Jura region of eastern France. It gets its character of being matured in a barrel under a yeast film for 6 years in oak barrels, known as veil, on the surface of the wine.  The wine is made from Savagnin grapes, with some of the most upscale examples from marl-based vineyards in the Chateau-Chalon AOC.

 

Tasting Note

Hazelnut nose, roasted almond nuts, fresh mushrooms

Good richness on the palate, balanced with a characteristic roundness which joins the aromas of the olfactory aspect. Dry and typical wine, bright, intense, golden color.

 

Food Matching

Enjoy with a hot starter (snails, pies), dishes cooked with cream (fish, white meats, morels). Sublime on a foie gras or a Comté cheese.
