Whether first created by accident or on purpose, speculations around the true origins of oxidative wines abound. What we know for sure is that vin jaune is emblematic of a place, the Jura.
Traditionally made from Savagnin grapes by maturing the wines in open barrels under a thin layer of yeast, vin jaune takes its name from the deep yellow hue it develops after years of ageing.
From Arbois to Chateau Chalon, we’ll compare different winemakers’ thoughts and ideas on this method and the impact it has on the wine.
Join us for a tasting in our private dining room La Cachette hosted by our sommelier James where we’ll share some bottles from our cellars and snacks provided by the kitchen.
