“Yellow wine” is produced with white grapes, it is exclusively made with the Savagnin grape variety which gives a yellow or green grape.

Vin Jaune from the Jura has several designations of origin: Château-Chalon (AOC), Arbois, (AOC) and Arbois-Pupillin, L’étoile (AOC) as well as les Côtes-du-Jura. The “appellation” means that the origin and the quality of “Yellow Wines” are certified. Bestwine • Online only suggests references of Vins jaunes with a certified origin.

Benefitting from several years ageing in oak barrels, Vin Jaune has unusual flavours.

This long conservation in barrels, gives Vin Jaune complex flavours and aromas. Vin jaune or “Yellow Wine” has a characteristically woody, spicy, or grilled aroma. It is possible to detect flavours of walnut, nuts, almonds, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, celery or even curry when tasting “Yellow Wine”. It Is aged in used oak barrels which have been used for other Vin Jaunes or Burgundies. In these used oak barrels sotolon develops which is a strong aromatic compound giving “Yellow Wine” its characteristic flavour.

“Yellow Wine” has an attractive appearance, a golden bright yellow drink, it glitters in a glass, showing pretty reflections. In addition, Vin Jaune is put into originally shaped bottles called clavelin. A clavelin is a wine bottle which contains 62 centilitres and is only used to bottle” Yellow Wine” since the 18th Century. The Clavelin has become an emblem of Vin Jaune and even the Jura. Clavelin has a specific legal derogation to the winegrowing regulations granted by the European Union in 1980, to certify its unique shape and volume.

Vin Jaune is a wine that can be kept, which means that it can be kept several years in a bottle. In starred gastronomic restaurants’ wine cellars, bottles of Vin Jaune dating back several decades are frequently found. This long conservation comes from the fact that Vin Jaune has specific chemical reactions due to its contact with the wood, bacteria, and yeast. Naturally, the longer the conservation the more elaborate and unusual the variety of flavours. It is interesting to note that some bottles of “Yellow Wine” have been sold at auction for several tens of thousands of Euros. Amongst them a Vintage Vin Jaune dating back to 1774 which was still of very good quality despite its great age. So, in starred gastronomic restaurants, and wine cellars Vintage Vin Jaune is very often found.

In starred gastronomic restaurants, Vin Jaune can be served as aperitif or as an accompaniment for a starter, a main course, or a dessert. Vin Jaune goes with fish like Trout “au bleu”, or poultry like “Poularde aux Morilles” or “la Croûte aux Morilles”. Vin Jaune can also accompany typical regional Cdishes from the Franche- Comté like Chicken a la Comtoise or Potée Comtoise. It is an ideal alcoholic drink to go with foie gras or Comté, a local cheese. Vin Jaune is served chilled in ordinary wine glasses to appreciate the richness of its aromas.

In my opinion, nobody can claim to select a Vin Jaune and choose it as being the best. In fact, there are too many references of Vins Jaunes each possessing their own qualities. Furthermore, each person has his own inclinations and tastes which can differ from one person to another. Oenologists, wine shops, producers, or other wine professionals, cannot designate one Vin Jaune as being the best. This is why Bestwine • Online offers you suggestions of several excellent Vins Jaunes, which have been chosen as much for their taste as their history. As a good Vin Jaune is also made with passion by the wine growers who produce it.

Vin Jaune is the history of a recipe, a method, a wine variety, vineyards, and tools. Moreover, when mentioning the best Vins Jaunes, there is a historical quotation from the French Emperor Napoleon III which comes to mind; he pointed to a bottle of Vin Jaune and declared that it was “the best wine in the world”. Find out for yourself by tasting one or several references of exceptional Vin Jaunes. There is not just a unique Vin Jaune but several exquisite Vins Jaunes.

Vin Jaune is not as popular as Red Wine, White Wine, Rosé Wine or Champagne. However, it has the same intensely pleasing flavour on the palate, as the other types of wines. Through Bestwine • Online, I would also like to promote Vin Jaune throughout the world. At the same time, I would like amateurs of wines and spirits to know the names and addresses of gastronomic restaurants, as well as the people who work in them.
