Product Details

Savagnin 'Sous Voile' from the Fruitière Vinicole d’Arbois is aged sous voile (under the flor yeast) and typically released after four or five years. It resembles a mini Vin Jaune, displaying the same creamy, walnut-like flavour and distinguished by a wonderful racy acidity. It is a very unique wine.

The Fruitière Vinicole d’Arbois co-operative is one of the oldest in France having been established in 1906. Its creation came in the wake of Europe’s devastating phylloxera outbreak which nearly wiped out France’s vineyards. 26 growers from Arbois decided to work together to make a stand against inferior wines being produced without a designated origin. They were so successful that it eventually lead to the creation of France’s first Appellation d’Origine Controlee (AOC) and the rest as they say is history. In 1969 the co-operative purchased Chateau Bathanie which is located in the heart of Arbois and equipped with modern wine making facilities. They are a great introduction to the areas unique wines.
