CHATEAU D'ARLAY JURA VIN JAUNE

CA$111.25
A family estate over 1000 years. A dry and powerful wine with walnut fragrance, the Vin Jaune is obtained using only Savagnin grapes from 1953 & 1974 vines. Made the same way it has always been made, it is matured for 6 ½ years in a barrel allowing a slow natural evaporation without topping up, no sulphating and under a natural film of local yeasts without the addition of commercial yeast. We do a rigorous selection of barrels to ensure only the best blending once a year.
Richness and complexity of the aromas, persistence of the fragrances, fresh and delicate style, everything participates in the highest expression of quality. A yellow colour with green or gold reflection... Long and powerful scents from nuts (walnut, hazelnut), dry fruit (grape, fig), mushrooms (morel, truffle, boletus), sweet spices (cloves, curry, ginger), toasted bread, mocha. Clear and vigorous start in the mouth, tastes of fresh and dry nuts, oriental spices, roasted aromas, cold tea, exotic wood, tobacco.

The Vin Jaune is always served tempered at room temperature (17°C), warmer than any other dry white wine. Sometimes people find that Vin jaune is hard to match with a dish. It all but the opposite: Vin jaune is the perfect answer to all the dishes which are hard to tune with a wine, from a simple salad with French dressing to caviar. It’s ideal with a Shitake soup or the Bocuse’s truffle soup, foie gras, morels, grilled lobster, scallops, monkfish, crayfish, caviar, snails, our typical chicken dish in morel cream sauce, orange duck, sushis, matured cheese (Comté, Mont d’or, Cantal, Gruyère, Appenzell, English Stilton, Beaufort) with nut bread.

In a cellar, our vin jaune can be aged for more than a century! Also an opened bottle can be kept, under regular conditions, for several weeks.
