Why Buy Me

Arbois-Pupillin "Foudre à Canon" is a white wine from Jura defined as 'naturé' because it is based only on Savagnin grapes and 'ouillé' because it is aged for 20 months on fine lees in large oak barrels without oxidation. It has a fruity and citrus aromatic profile, characterized by energy, freshness and a savory flavor.

Winemaker's Pitch

Entirely hand-harvested. Half destemmed, half whole-cluster. Fermentation without sulphites and only with indigenous yeasts in 1500 liter barrels. Aged in 1500 liter barrels on the lees for 12 months.
