Also known as Naturé, Païen, Traminer, this grape variety enjoys the cool climates of Central Europe, but it is in the Jura that it produces its best known wines. It is harvested a fortnight after the other grape varieties and so is harvested at a late maturity. It is mandatory in the vinification of the unique Vin Jaune, a typical Jura wine. A very singular wine available in 4 different appellations (Arbois, Côtes du Jura, L'Étoile, Château Chalon) and the result of a long ageing process under a layer of yeast. It can also be vinified in a more classical way to produce a dry white wine that is fleshy, fine and powerful enough to accompany spicy dishes. Savagnin offers great wines for cellaring with heady aromas.
