Savagnin

Savagnin is mainly cultivated in the Jura where it is used to make vin jaune and vin de paille, though it also makes a few, sporadic appearances in the vineyards of Alsace, Germany and Austria. It is also used in blends to make Jura crémant.

Very aromatic, even exuberant, Savagnin offers an impressive complexity with notes of nut, flowers, honey and apple, and an interesting minerality that plays with varying degrees of flint. The finish, often lightly buttery and following the powerful explosion of flavour, can develop and linger over several minutes. These wines age very well, and vin jaune can last forever...
