The Badoz family have been vignerons in Poligny, in the heart of Jura since 1659, transferring traditional winemaking techniques and local know-how from father to son for more than 10 generations.
Vin Jaune is made exclusively from the Savagnin grape variety. Planted on Jurassian blue clays, it is aged in oak barrels for 6 years and 3 months, without compensating for the share of evaporation of around a third of the volume. A veil of yeast forms on the surface of the wine, and protects it from any oxidation.
It is during this long ageing that it acquires its aromatic profile of spice and nuts.
