Sandwiched between Switzerland and Burgundy, in a remote corner of France, lies the appellation of the Jura - home to some of the country’s most original and overlooked wines. This white is from Arbois in the north, the childhood home of Louis Pasteur who used the regions wines in his experiments with yeasts and bacteria for his treatise on oenology. The vineyards of Arbois encompass six villages, of which only Pupullin may attach its name to the label. “Arbois le nom; Pupullin le bon”.   It’s made from Savagnin, a grape variety hardly found anywhere else in the world and responsible for the great wines of Chateau Chalon, with a dash of Chardonnay. Tradionally aged in old wood, the wine has some of the slightly maderised character for which true vin jeaune is famous.
