Fruitière Vinicole D'Arbois, Chardonnay, Jura, France, 2018Regular price £15.50
Give this to us blind and we'll guess that it's classic Chablis every time. Leave it in the glass for an hour and we'll wonder what we were thinking as the wine becomes more floral and fruits become a little more ripe. A touch of honey even on the palate.
Established in 1906 and claiming to be the oldest co-operative in France, the Arbois Fruitière has played a significant role in the history and development of modern Jura wines. Since its founding, its members fought hard to protect the good name of Arbois, with their work being rewarded in 1936 when Arbois became one of the first of the new appellations to be born. With a combination of ancient and modern cellars, the wines have been an extremely reliable source of Jura wines for over ten decades now.
