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...

Arbois Jaune Savagnin is the only grape permitted to be used in making the unique and exquisite Vin Jaune. To make a great wine of this type the Savagnin must be both high in sugar and high in acid. Special parcels within the village of Montigny Les Arsures (“Champs Mody”, “Les Sauvagny”, & “Les Loges”) have the potential to produce this hard-to-obtain combination. The Vin Jaune is not made every year. The Savagnin destined for the Vin Jaune must age in foudre at least 6 1/2 years but Puffeney usually waits 8 1/2 years to make a final determination as to whether the appropriate quality level has been reached. Those barrels that have not developed as Puffeney wishes are sometimes bottled as special cuvées of Savagnin, thus preserving only the very best and most promising barrels for later bottling as “Jaune”.
