Ranked among the greatest wines of France, Vin Jaune is made exclusively from the Savagnin grape variety. Planted on blue Jurassic clays, it matures in oak barrels for 6 years and 3 months, without compensating for the evaporation share of around a third of the volume. A veil of yeast forms on the surface of the wine, and protects it from any oxidation. It is during this long ageing that it acquires its spicy aromas of nuts, almonds or curry. Drink as an aperitif, or with chicken, fish, strong cheeses or bitter chocolates.
Claude Marechal makes his wines as naturally as possible, taking his inspiration from his late friend Henri Jayer who he trained with early in his career. He makes wines above and beyond the expectations of his terroirs. His wines are pure and sleek with vibrant fruit and great potential to age. These wines are available in very limited quantities but are something you should definitely have in your cellar.
In the heart of Volnay this is an estate that was handed over to the son 8 years ago. Pierrick has since won the title of ‘Young Vigneron of the Year’ from Bourgogne Aujourdhui magazine. He uses minimal sulphur, none during fermentation and lets the wines evolve naturally. The results are wines with very pure fruit, not masked by oak, silky tannins and really good length. They are fantastic Volnay and taste just as Volnay should.
