SAVAGNIN 

Jura grape variety famous for its vin jaune

Savagnin

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.

MORE INFORMATION

What's is Vin Jaune, yellow wine?

Nicknamed "l'Or du Jura", "Gold from Jura" this dry wine is made exclusively from a single local grape variety, the Savagnin. The AOC is divided into 4 origins: Arbois, Côtes du Jura, Château-Chalon and l'Etoile. The colour of the yellow wine owes its distinctiveness to its unique winemaking process. Kept for six years and three months in oak barrels without a lid, a veil of yeast forms on the surface of the wine, protecting it from oxidation. This maturing process gives the famous 'yellow taste'. The formation of the layer causes the transformation of ethanol into ethenal, releasing aromas of apple and fresh nuts. The complexity of the aromas occurs during ageing, with the appearance of the sotolon. This very powerful aromatic compound reveals the nutty notes so characteristic of yellow wine. Once bottled in a bottle called a clavelin, the level of sotolon continues to change during ageing, making it a wine for long cellaring. Every first Saturday of February since 1996, a wine festival has been held to honour the subtlety and complexity of the aromas of this precious golden nectar.

Also called depending on the region Naturé, Païen, Traminer.
