Producer
Domaine Rolet, founded in the early 1940s, is Jura’s largest family- owned estate. The second generation – four siblings – now run the show: Bernard and Guy look after the sixty hectares of vines as well as the winemaking, while Pierre and Eliane handle the commercial side. The vines are old, the yields low, and the vinification meticulous, leading to brilliant, precise expressions of Jura’s distinctive wine styles.

Vineyard
The grapes were harvested by hand from vines aged thirty to fifty, planted on grey marl soils in the commune of Arbois.

Winery
After a slow pressing and settling of the juice, fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for six years and three months in barriques without topping up or racking, allowing a film of yeast to develop on the surface of the wine, adding its own complex flavours while slowing the rate of oxidation.

Taste
The pinnacle of Jura winemaking, Vin Jaune combines the savoury nuttiness of Manzanilla sherry with lighter body, greater intensity, and markedly tangy acidity. This paradigm example offers stupendous balance, clarity and length.
