    Leave uncovered on low heat to reduce by 3/4.

    Once the liquid has reduced, pour the contents of teh pan through a fine strainer sitting over a bowl.

    Press the shallots to squeeze out all the juices and not waste any, then discard them.

    Note: Any stage like this which ends up with making a "jus" can be done days in advance if necessary and the jus kept in a sealed jar in the fridge.

    Right at the end, take off the heat and pour 50 ml Vin Jaune into the thick sauce, whisking gently to mix in.

    This last dose of Vin Jaune serves two purposes: 1) to add the fresh flavour of Vin Jaune, well marked as it will not have been cooked, and 2) to thin the sauce slightly.

Remarks:

You can prepare two different versions of this sauce: "special occasion" with Vin Jaune, or more economical using Jura white wine made with the Savagnin grape variety.
