Jura

The Jura vineyards occupy the slopes that descend from the first plateau of the Jura mountains to the plain below. The local grape varieties are perfectly adapted to the soils and produce wine of a very specific regional character. Savagnin is cultivated on the poorest marly soils and is best known as the variety used in vin jaune (yellow wine). Vin Jaune undergoes a process similar to sherry, whereby a film of yeast (une voile) covers the surface, thereby preventing oxidation but allowing evaporation and the subsequent concentration of the wine. The result is a sherry-like wine with a delicate, nutty richness.
