History has it that…. Yellow wine (Vin jaune) is made from Savagnin grapes and was traditionally produced by the abbesses of Château-Chalon, which abbey was founded in the VIIth century. As the pleasures of the flesh were forbidden to them, it is said that they transferred all their love to the wine… The legend also says that yellow wine was randomly discovered by a winegrower who had forgotten an old barrel in his cellar and discovered, many years later, the delicious metamorphosis of his wine.
