Every now and then a curve-ball gets thrown at Vinomofo, and we’re ready, waiting to catch it. Château-Chalon Vin Jaune AOC - is definitely one to look out for. It starts out in left-field. And stays out there! To begin, it’s made with the savagnin grape in Jura ,which hugs both sides of the French / Swiss border. So a region in two different countries is interesting. But that’s only the start. Once fermentation in barrel is complete, it stays in barrel, untouched, for a minimum of six years and three months. That’s nearly one whole dog year. Over that time, two important things happen. Wine evapourates down to 620ml for every litre made (hence the bottle size) creating concentration of flavour. And secondly, a thin film of yeast develops on top of the wine in barrel (a bit like sherry), imparting nutty, mushroomy nuances. There’s no lees stirring or barrel turning. The wine barrels remain untouched for all of that time.
Under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 it is an offence:
* to supply alcohol to a person under the age of 18 years (penalty exceeds $8,000).
* for a person under the age of 18 years to purchase or receive liquor (penalty exceeds $700)
