Montanaro Vermouth di Torino Bianco

Jura, France
L'Étoile Vin Jaune AOC
Made exclusively from the Savagnin grape, the Vin Jaune of Montbourgeau is always produced from a late harvest. After fermentation the wine is racked into foudres (30 hectoliter size) and then, after six months, racked again into smaller barrels. It is never topped off, the “voile” appears and the wine is left for at least seven years to age in barrel before being declared “Vin Jaune” and being bottled.
Fermentation: Following manual destemming and a 3-4 day cold soak, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel tanks. Cuvaison lasts 18-24 days. Wine is racked following malolactic and remains on its fine lees until assemblage prior to bottling.
Élevage: 12 months in 25-hl neutral oak foudres followed by 6 years in 230-l neutral oak barrels
