Jura White - Savignan. A truly unique wine. Aged in 600 litre barrels for six years with no topping. During this time the wine creates a film of yeast called flor, just as you would see in Sherry. The result is an incredibly nutty, salty wine that is bewildering. It matches perfectly with the local dish of Coq au Vin Jaune, and the world famous Comté cheese. As the wine evaporates (the ‘angels share’ as it is called) it concentrates. This is why a Vin Jaune bottle is 620ml instead of 750ml. If you have not tried Vin Jaune then be brave and try!
