Cotes du Jura
White Wine

Cotes du Jura wine can be red, white or rose and the appellation also includes Jura's famous vin jaune and vin de paille.

As a result, the title extends over a wide range of the wine color spectrum, to the extent that the Jurassiens have added corail (coral) and rubis (ruby) to red, white and rosé to effectively distinguish the wines by hue. This color diversity is due in large part to the fact that 'white' Cotes du Jura may be made from up to 20 percent red grapes – and vice-versa. Poulsard, the region's key red variety, is lightly pigmented and is used to control the final color of a rosé wine.

Despite its global success, Chardonnay as a grape is relatively neutral and it is not considered an aromatic variety. Indeed, it is often dubbed "the winemaker's grape", for it is in the winery that many of its defining characters are amplified or reduced. Made in a variety of styles, Chardonnay wines can show fruit notes that run from citrusy and mineral to exotic and toasty.

At its most basic, Chardonnay produces wines of a light golden hue, with notes of citrus, green apple, blossom and almonds or oatmeal. On the palate, Chardonnay has moderate acidity and moderate alcohol with a medium body. Climate, as well as viticulture and winemaking, play a major role in the aromas and flavors of the resulting wine.
