Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

This is one of the most recognised wines in the world. The famous Vin Jaune is unique thanks to the oxidation that takes place and the layer of yeast that develops on its surface. This type of wine is made from the Savagnin variety, harvested as ripe as possible and then fermented. It then spends at least 6 years resting in old Burgundy barrels. No racking, no movement. Total rest and silence.

In all this time, not even the lees are topped up, so that as the wine evaporates, a layer of yeast appears (some say it is very similar to what happens in the D.O. Jerez-Xèrés-Sherry), which influences the wine’s organoleptic characteristics. The right climatic conditions to make Vin Jaune are only found in certain areas. The French town of Château-Chalon (in the centre of the country, an hour and a half from the Swiss border) is where it originates; but it is also produced in other denominations like the A.O.C. Arbois, A.O.C. L'Étoile and the A.O.C. Côtes du Jura. The Pignier family are based in the latter.

The Pigniers have been making wines in this area on the slopes of Montaigu (in the north-east of France) for more than a century. The tradition was started there in the 13th century by the monks of Chatreux, until 1794 when the Pignier family bought it. Today the seventh generation, Jean Etienne, Antoine and Marie Florence, are running the business and have made some changes and introduced some new methods like biodynamic cultivation. This means that the vines, which grow in the Vallière valley, on clayey loams and Jurassic limestone, are treated with horn manure, silica and infusions.

Undoubtedly, this care will be reflected in the wine. Quality is also ensured through the selection process and through manual harvesting in small boxes. For Domaine Pignier Vin Jaune, fermentation will start spontaneously with native yeasts and will spend 7 years of aging under a yeast cap in an ancient thirteenth century cellar. After a thorough selection process, only the best wines will become Domaine Pignier Vin Jaune 63, which will be bottled according to the natural calendar and sealed with natural cork marked with fire.
