Tissot Chateau Chalon

$148.83

“This is a benchmark example of Jura’s iconic Vin Jaune. Savagnin is fermented then aged a minimum of six years in old barrels without any top ups. As a result, around a third of the wine’s volume evaporates and as that ullage increases, a complex layer of yeast flor forms above the wine, inhibiting greater oxidation and adding a unique yeast character to the wine. The result is a powerful, concentrated, complex wine, with great minerality, much higher acidity than fino sherry, and characteristic aromas of nuts and dried fruit, with ageing potential north of a century.

Château Chalon is its own sub-region, an AOC specifically for the Jura’s finest vin jaune from the area around the Château. This is the tête de cuvée of Stéphane’s line of vin jaune’s. This bewildering wine is the definition of unicorn juice!” – Andrew Stewart, Vino al Vino
