Vin Jaune (French for yellow wine) is a type of dry wine made in the Jura region of France.
The flavours range from smoky to yeasty and contain intense acidity. The wine has been traditionally made in a temperature controlled fermentation tank and stored for a period of six to seven years before qualifying as vin jaune. The layer of yeast protects the wine from the air.
The wine shares many similarities with fino sherry, including rare aromas, but unlike sherry, vin jaune is not a fortified wine. Vin Jaune gets its characters from being barrel-aged under a layer of yeast, called voille, on the wine’s surface.
Vin Jaune wine is made entirely from savagnin grapes. These grapes are commonly harvested late in the appletations of Arbois, Cotes de Jura and Chateau-Chalon.

Barrel will be deliverd with a wooden or silicon bung.
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
Pictures are examples, colour variations are possible.
