    Your morel risotto with Vin Jaune and Mont d'Or is ready - enjoy!

Remarks:

For simplicity's sake, you will see "Jura white wine" in the list of ingredients, but do try to use a Vin Jaune if you can, even if it is rather expensive. Otherwise, any white wine made with Savignin grapes will do (and at a more reasonable price).

And to drink?

Without hesitation, a Jura white. The same wine as used in the recipe is the perfect accompaniment.
