Arlay - Vin Jaune Clavelin (620ml), 2004

Chateau D'Arlay

Tasting note: Dry, powerful wine with aromas of nuts. Vin Jaune (yellow wine) is obtained from Savagnin grapes, then matured nearly 7 years in the barrel, subject to natural evaporation, without racking or topping or sulfitation, under a carpet of yeast. With richness and complexity of flavours, this is not unlike a dry sherry in style and may be drunk as an aperitif. The bottle, called a Clavelin, is unique and contains 620ml. It is recommended that you open the bottle a few hours before serving.
