Some history

The yellow wine : A wine the people of Jura are proud of! Made exclusively with Savagnin grapes, it has aromas of walnut, hazelnut, curry and almond. It is ideal for cooking yet also goes perfectly with a cheese platter. One of tis most distinctive features is its 62cl bottl, called a "Clavelin".
