Y for Yellow


Even though the wine in our glasses seems yellow, it is white.

However, a white wine called "vin jaune" or literally "yellow wine" exists.

The yellow wine is made from late harvest Savagnin grapes, a local white variety in the Jura, in the East of France.

It's not only yellow, it's also delicious.

I don't like the yellow or white wine. Red is my color.

hpy a dit…

G für gelb.
G per giallo.

You should taste yellow wine Elina. Maybe you would like it.

Pour un vin blanc frais, le verre est vraiment le juste, (.. c'est la troisième bouteille eh!)

Liisa a dit…

Was the wine chosen to match the colour of the shirt? :)

hpy a dit…

Nazzareno, c'est au moins la troisième! ;)

hpy a dit…

Liisa, of course it was!

RUTH a dit…

Love the yellow shirt....I'm a red wine drinker myself...in moderation of course ;o)

RuneE a dit…

Could I have a bottle, please ;-)

Le buveur de vin jaune a assortie sa chemisette !

Cergie a dit…

Il y a aussi le vin de paille, non ? C'est un vin de Savoie fait avec du raisin dt le mûrissement est terminé sur des claies en paille

Le vin blanc est fait avec du raisin noir. Le jus de raisin est toujours blanc

Le vin jaune... ahhhhh délice. On appelle ça "les vendanges tardives" chez nous. En Valais, mon canton d'origine, un des meilleurs vin c'est la Malvoisie ou alors l'Amigne. Un pur délice avec du foie gras. ça vaut tout à fait un Sauterne français.

Les grands esprits se rencontrent quand même, niveau alcool. Monsieur X a de quoi faire dans son frigo. :-))) Bonne journée hpy et ne travaillez pas trop!

Olivier a dit…

merci de nous inviter pour boire un coup de vin blanc.

Pour repondre a miss cergie, le vin paillé ne vient pas que de savoie, on en trouve beaucouo dans le perigord. On le boit en mangeant des pets-de-nonne. Hummmmmmmm j'en bave d'envie.

Beautiful shot. Great angle

To me the lamp is yellow and the shirt is certainly yellow-ish, but I certainly wouldn't describe the wine as being yellow - alas my red-green colour-blindness means [like 10% of males] I don't quite see colours and shades the same way as those not afflicted - I'd possibly describe the wine as being a sort of reddish-grey!

hpy a dit…

Ruth, red is good! But it doesn't go with Y.

A bottle of water for Runee, please!

Claudia, tu crois que nous faisons exprès? Qui sait?

Cergie, le vin blanc est fait de raisins noirs ou blancs, mais à chair blanche. Et surtout, on ne fait pas macérer le jus avec la peau, et ainsi on garde la couleur blanche.

Grand esprit, ugh!

Olivier, à ta santé.


Thank you David McMahon.

Ackworth, it must be interesting to see the colours in a different way. At least sometimes. Reddish-grey wine!

SusuPetal a dit…

That colour doesn't suit me, makes me look paler than ever.
And yellow wine makes my head ache.
Red doesn't.

But still -it looks delicious!!!!!

hpy a dit…

It's sure, SusuPetal, that your head will ache if you empty the third bottle all by yourself. Even if it's red.

I added a link in French and English to the yellow wine.

Neva a dit…

Very unique! Love how you shot this.

Fantastic capture. I really love yellow wine too.

"Y" was a hard one. "Yellow" was a good one.

Ackworth Born a dit…

the problem alas is that it isn't "sometimes" but "always" - whilst I think some attempts have been made to show people how things look to those of us who are colour-blind, that fact is we can never be sure that what we see is the same as what others see. In any case we colours by being told that such and such is this or that colour -- it is distinguishing shades that creates the problems.

Y is for Yummy wine too :)

dot a dit…

Your wine is a beautiful color. Nice Y post!

Deb a dit…

Great-looking photo!

Mick a dit…

Gorgeous!

bonnie a dit…

What a beautiful picture. Is vin jaune sweet? I usually associate late harvest wines with a sweet taste. I love wine. It is fun to learn about and discover new tastes.

Crystal clear lovely photograph

happyone a dit…

A beautiful photo and an original Y. Great idea.

hpy a dit…

Neva, it wasn't me, it was the camera!

Digitalshuttermania, wine is good.

Ackworth, yes, there's a difference between sometimes and always. Always may not be interesting at all.

Mike, yummy yellow wine!

Dot and deb. Thank you

Mick. Do you care for a glass?


Bonnie. No, it's not a sweet wine.


Peter M, lovely win in the glasses.


Happyone, or hpy one?
