There is no doubt that at the moment Jura wines are very “trendy”; they are unique wines, characterized by great freshness and drinkability, marked acidity and aromatic range… in short words, “Funky Wines”! The “Oxidized” wine is the symbol of the Jura; it is declined in different typologies due to the more or less long stay “sous voile” (the veil of indigenous yeasts) in fills barrels. It ranges from 2-3 years of refinement, up to a minimum of 6 years of Vin Jaune. Instead, vinified in a “classic” Burgundian way, that is, in filled barrels, they are called “Ouillè”. The main grape varieties are:
Chardonnay: A well-known grape variety, it comes from nearby Burgundy. Mainly vinified in Ouillè style. It is the most common white grape variety in Jura. Often also used for Cremants.
Savagnin: It is the most characteristic white grape variety of the Jura. Used in purity for Vin Jaune, it is often vinified in Sous Voile style. Characterized by great acidity and flavor.
Poulsard or Ploussard: Grape variety characterized by light color, medium body, great freshness and drinkability, citrus and spices in evidence.
Trousseau: Second red grape variety for diffusion, it is characterized by greater rusticity and a hint of bursting spices.
Other grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Savagnin Noir, Beclans
