The godfather of the Jura hardly needs an introduction; his cuvées are produced in tiny quantities and grow rarer each year. First imported by Neal Rosenthal in the '80s, Puffeney's were among the first Jura wines introduced to Americans. What were once mere quirks from an obscure region are now some of the wine world's most sought after wines.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

The Savagnin finds its true home in the Jura. It is speculated that the origin of this grape is the Traminer from northeastern Italy but, to us, the Savagnin of the Jura is a one-of-a-kind grape with the capacity to perform miracles. It is a fickle grape, not easy to ripen, that does best in poor soils infused with marne. Often harvested in mid-to-late October or often into November, Puffeney’s Savagnin is fermented in both steel cuve and wooden foudre; afterwards, the wine is racked into smaller oak barrels for aging, often for two or three year … and sometimes special cuvées are produced that can age for six or more years before release. [These sometimes are the result of a selection process during the aging of the Vin Jaune when Puffeney determines a wine might not have precisely what is needed to qualify as a “Jaune”).
