Description

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. Their delicious Chardonnay is aged in large oak foudre and cement tanks and resembles a classic Chablis inn style complete with white citrus and green apple fruits and a chalky limestone minerality.

Producer Information: Fruitiere Viticole Arbois

One of the oldest co-operatives in France formed to combine the resources of local farmers and, importantly, to guard against inferior quality in the age before appellation controllee. Although it has expanded into the neighbouring commune of Poligny, the centre of operations remains at Chateau Bethanie close to the centre of historic Arbois at the foothills of the Jura mountains.
