2003 Tissot Arbois Vin Jaune (500ml)

SKU #1091207

Vin Jaune is a wine like no other. Produced in only exceptional vintages when the Indian summer enables Savagnin to develop optimum ripeness, the wine then undergoes a most unique elevage: once fermented it must age in old oak barrels for at least 6 years without any topping-up to replace the portion of wine that evaporates. A thin layer of yeast, or voile, forms on the wines surface much like a flor, used in the making of fino sherries. The wine, which displays an unbelievable degree of richness and complexity is balanced by a fine acidity which enable these wines to age for years! Deep golden in color, this dry wine is at once nutty and spicy, with aromas of golden raisins, resin, and ginger. Enjoy with an assortment of fine cheese or mushroom vol-au-vent. 15% abv.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
