This Vin Jaune is light bodied, powerful and fresh.

The Jura region is one of France's smallest wine regions comprising just 2,500 hectares. Despite its size however, it has grown a steadfast reputation for the sheer quality of its wines. Fabrice Dodane, owner of Domaine de Saint Pierre is part of a small group of discerning producers, which includes Jean-Francois Ganevat, who push the boundaries, making stunning, profound and complex wines. The "Vin Jaune" cuvée is from vineyards located on grey marl in the appellation Arbois.

The bouquet is powerful; opening up on strong nutty, fresh hazelnut flavours and a delicate salinity. It's fresh and elegant on the palate with airy aromas of nuts pushing through a lingering finish.

It can be drunk with roast poultry with cream sauce, aged Comté cheese or as an aperitif. Drink now or keep up until 2035+. 100% Savagnin. Oxydative style. 620ml bottle.

"The “Vin Jaune” is very particular and a fascinating wine made from ancient methods. Fabrice Dodane has preserved an unmistakable oxidative style yet the freshness and the clean finish are refreshing. It’s a wine you can keep open for months. It has no equal when it comes to sip Vin Jaune with a piece of aged Comté cheese!The “Vin Jaune” is very particular and a fascinating wine made from ancient methods.

At Domaine de Saint Pierre, the grapes are treated to the highest care, farmed organically and using biodynamic practices. The very low yields achieved through rigorous vineyard management are vital to reach such a high quality of wine. The grapes are sorted and only the healthiest grapes make it to the press. From harvest to bottling, Fabrice doesn’t add any additives to the must or wine. Therefore, the wines don’t have any sulphur added. Once the grapes are pressed, the must is pumped into an oak fermenter to undergo its alcoholic fermentation. Then the wine is raked and pumped into 228 litre oak barrels at just ¾ full. The wine is left to mature for a further three years, forming a yeast film on top to protect the wine against hard oxidation. The yeast film acts as protection against off flavours that can be developed during that extensive time. The wine is then bottled.
