    On the foothills of the Jura Mountains, just east of the Cote de Beaune on the Switzerland border, the Jura wine-producing zone is recognized for its unique reds, as well as its particular and diverse styles of whites.

    Though borrowed from their neighbor Burgundy, Chardonnay and Pinot noir have been growing in Jura since the Middle Ages. But here the altitude, topography, climate and clay-rich, marl soils support a different style of Pinot noir, not to mention its other deeply-colored, full-bodied indigenous reds, Poulsard and Trousseau.

    Considering area under vine, growers here favor Chardonnay for its consistency and reliability; it comprises almost half of Jura's vineyard acreage. However, Jura Chardonnay is anything but boring; its many offbeat styles are part of what make region’s wines so distinctive. It is used for Cremant (sparkling), Macvin (a fortified wine), as well as fine examples at the quality level of Burgundy.

    Jura also has a unique oxidative style for Chardonnay but is better recognized for its similarly-styled “vin jaune,” meaning ‘yellow wine,’ which is made from the indigenous variety, Savagnin. Vin jaune is made using techniques similar to those used to make Sherry.

    For all of its wines, Jura favors a traditional, natural and often organic style in viticulture and winemaking.

    Though rare, Poulsard is a valuable delicately-hued red variety of the Jura, often used for still rosé, Crémant du Jura rosé and the semi-sweet sparkling cru Cerdon of Bugey. Poulsard also adds finesse to blends with Trousseau and Pinot Noir. Somm Secret—Poulsard works well as a little color boost to the vin de paille of Jura, a sweet white wine style made by drying grapes on straw mats.
