Le Glanon Chardonnay come from a 25-year old vineyard planted at 250m above sea level, on iridescent marl. The wine has a floral character, with ripe pear, apple coming from its generous palate; creamy edge ending with citrus notes, very well made and delicious.

Manual harvest, fully destemmed, pressed after few hours skin contact. Indigenous yeasts, fermentation in wooden vats, then aged for 12 months in foudre. Bottled without filtration nor fining and without addition of SO2.

Fruitière Vinicole de Pupillin was created by a handful of the village's most innovative winegrowers in 1909. They decided to join forces to produce more consistent wines, pooling together their know-how and equipment. Today, it covers some 60 hectares, mainly in the commune of Pupillin, but also in the neighbouring appellations of Arbois and Côtes du Jura. Around 30 members contribute their grapes, the fruits of their labour (Fruitière), which are vinified together to produce floral or typical white wines, rosé wines, light or structured red wines, Crémants and Macvins, and specialities such as Vin de Paille or Vin Jaune.

The winery is over 100 years old, but has never stopped evolving to combine tradition and modern techniques in a way that respects sustainable and responsible farming.
