A little gem produced in exclusive quantities, this Chardonnay is matured sous voile (under a yeast "veil", or film), prompting comparisons with the famous regional vin jaune.  More info

The domain's "little gem", a mere 3000 bottles being produced, this Chardonnay aged sous voile is reminiscent, to a certain extent, of vin jaune. In fact, thanks to its typically Jura élevage (three months sous voile as compared to six years and three months for vin jaune), the wine is blessed with aromas such as walnut and spices (curry, nutmeg, saffron). Delicious if enjoyed straight away, it is even better when aged for several years and paired with flavoursome dishes such as a mature cheese or a sauce-based fish or poultry dish.

Côtes du Jura Chardonnay sous voile Jean Macle serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Foie gras, Rillettes de porc, Feuilleté au comté.
