Franche-Comté is a region located in the east of France, next to the Swiss border, it produces great wines thanks to the favorable climate and the humidity in the area. A variety of red, rose, and white wines can be found, but the most common wine out there is the yellow wine. The yellow wine is produced in the Vin Jaune from a unique varietal called Savagnin, The taste of this wine comes from ageing in barrels for a little more than 6 years. The terroirs of Burgundy Cote de Beaune, and Cote de Nuit Climats, received a world heritage status because of the unique locality where grapes are cultivated. Most of the famous wines are made of the pinot noir from this region, including Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Vougeot, Vosne-Romanee, and Aloxe-Corton.
