The Wines of the Jura: 100% Terroir
These wines are genuine signature pieces from the terroirs of the Jura foothills, with six Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée, which celebrate the authenticity of Jura Wines: Arbois, Château-Chalon, l’Etoile, Côtes du Jura, Macvin du Jura and Crémant du Jura. The identity of these wines also lies in the grape varieties present in these vineyards. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay bring a classic note to Jura wines, while the Trousseau, Poulsard and Savagnin varieties, which are typical of the Jura, offer an element of originality and exoticism.
The Expertise of the Winemakers
The originality of Jura wines does not stop at the grape and the soil. Add to this the unique knowledge of Jura winemakers in turning their harvest into delicious nectar, the most emblematic of which are the Vin Jaune (“yellow wine”) and Vin de Paille (“straw wine”). Their expertise is closely related to scientific work done by Pasteur, the Arbois celebrity.
Ready to be Discovered: Nature on a Grand Scale
A Jura wine ensures above all that your table is endowed with unprecedented colours and aromas, whether it’s accompanying some Bresse chicken or a nice piece of Comté cheese. But discovering these wines is also about celebrating the symbolic piercing, or “breaking open” of the Vin Jaune (1st weekend in February) and enjoying the Jura hills as you travel along wine road. Two good reasons to organise a trip to stay with family or friends in the Jura Mountains.
