Jura wine, in organic, nature or otherwise!
The Jura vineyard extends over 80 km and 5 km wide through the departments of Doubs, Haute-Saône and Jura. The soils are stony composed of marls (lias), clay and limestone. There are typical grape varieties such as Savagnin, Poulsard and Trousseau but also Chardonnay, Gamay and Pinot Noir. Three types of wines specific to the Jura: Vin de Paille, Vin Jaune and Macvin. The so-called "typical" wines are wines with an oxidative style with this famous "nutty" taste. The wines are then left unpolluted during ageing, which makes it possible to obtain a light veil of yeasts which will promote slight oxydation. The yellow wine will have an aging period under veil of at least 6 years. Vin de Paille is a natural sweet wine where the grapes are dried on racks or hung to reach a high concentration of sugar. Fermentation for one year before aging for a minimum of 3 years, including 18 months in barrels. Finally, Macvin is a liquor wine obtained by mixing grape must with brandy made from wine or Marc du Jura. Under the influence of Pierre Overnoy in particular, a strong community of winegrowers work the soils and the vines with respect for the living and winemaking without input for our greatest happiness!
