Jasnières
Jasnières AOC wines come from the Touraine area of the Loire Valley region in central France. These medium-body dry or sweet white wines vary a lot from year to year. They are made from the region's signature Chenin Blanc grape and may be cellared for 2 to 4 years.

Juliénas French Wine

Juliénas French Wine

Juliénas AOC
Juliénas AOC wines come from the Beaujolais region of northeastern France. This often underrated spicy, fruity Cru Beaujolais can develop when cellared for 3 to 8 years. The best examples may be cellared for 5 to 15 years. Do I have to tell you it's a Gamay?


Jurançon AOC
Jurançon AOC wines come from the Jura region of eastern France near the Swiss border. These spicy, sweet whites may taste of fruit. They are made from a variety of local grapes and may be cellared for 5 to 20 years.

Jurançon Sec AOC
Jurançon Sec AOC wines come from the Jura region of eastern France near the Swiss border. These dry whites are made from the same grape varieties as their sweet cousins. These grapes haven't ripened as much. They may be cellared for 2 to 5 years.
