Jura Savoie

Jura Savoie
Producing some of the more unusual wines found in France, the Jura Savoie wine region. Jura is home to some rather particular styles of wine, including the sherry-like Vin Jaune – matured under a layer or flor of yeast to give a uniquely rich flavour, and the Vin de Paille – a sweet wine made from grapes that have been naturally dried on sheets of straw.

  1. Domaine Rolet Arbois Vin Jaune, 2010
    Rating:
    80% of 100

    Remarkable wine indeed! Vin Jaune is made exclusively with Juras Savagnin grapes in a way which defies the most elementary oenological laws: 6 years in three quarter filled oak barrels without ouillage (topping up) so that nothing disturbs the thin surface film, a veil of live yeasts, responsible for the yellow colour of the wine. The wine is then bottled in Clavelins holding 62cl, which corresponds to 1 litre of the wine harvested 6 years earlier. At this point the wine is almost indestructible and will age for 100 years or more. Rolet's vins jaune are benchmark classics, uncorked in advance and served at a temperature of 15 degrees, it develops inimitable, subtle green walnut flavours. This is a wine of tremendous body that is quite delicious with cheeses from Franche-Comte, Coq au Vin Jaune et Morilles, fish and poultry dishes in rich, creamy sauces.
