Marie-Pierre Chevassu, AOC Château-Chalon, Jura, 2007, 62cl

About this wine

The Savagnin grape produces a vin jaune (yellow wine) at Château-Chalon, which is aged for 6 years on ullage in barrel. It undergoes a process similar to sherry, whereby a film of yeast (une voile) covers the surface, thereby preventing oxidation but allowing evaporation and the subsequent concentration of the wine. The result is a sherry-like wine with a delicate, nutty richness. It is bottled in the traditional bottle called clavelin that is of a peculiar shape and with a capacity of 62 cl, which is accounted for by a local legend. 62cl is the amount left of a litre of wine after aging in cask. Whilst drinking very well now it could be kept if you have the right cellar conditions.
