AOC Mont-sur-Rolle Grand Cru, Savagnin jaune, « veiled wine »
Based on Savagnin Blanc, (like ‘vin jaune’ from the French Jura), this wine has stayed veiled (in a partially filled cask where a veil has formed over the wine) for 6 years and 3 months. This prolonged oxidation gives the wine a taste of walnuts …
…Which naturally makes it the perfect companion for cheese, trout or poultry in a ‘vin jaune’ sauce.
Advice from a famous chef: use half the bottle to make a great sauce, and the other half to go with it!
Serving temperature: 13°C
