The Chateau de Chavanes at Montigny-les-Arsures (39 Jura, Franche-Comté) produces some of the best Jura wines from the Arbois AOC appellation, especially with the local Savignin grapes – note this is not Sauvignon – which produces dry white wines and the spectacular local Vin Jaune (yellow wine) and Vin de Paille (straw wine – as the process involves drying the grapes on beds of straw!
