3 km from Arbois and 9 km from Poligny, between Bresse and the Jura plateaus, perched on the slopes of Pupillin, it is the know-how and alchemy of 4 generations that operate at the
St. Benoit's cellar.
Today, Benjamin BENOIT, in love with the earth and the work of the cellar, is taking over. After his studies of viticulture in Beaune and his experiences in Burgundy and New Zealand, he wishes to bring his touch to the work of his fathers.
The terroir wines from these highly reputed plots of land were recognised by decree in 1970, allowing the name of the village to be added; the appellation Arbois Contrôlée, the first appellation in France in 1936.
Rich in these lands, the Jura offers a wide range of flavours and colours, which are declined through 5 grape varieties: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Ploussard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir
The nuances of such aromatic and gustatory diversity that you are bound to find a wine that suits you!
In order to fight against the erosion of the slopes, the soil is worked with small, light, caterpillar-mounted equipment, thus preserving a living environment, the guarantee of a wine that best expresses the terroirs.
The entire production chain is controlled: Hand-picking, sustainable agriculture, limited production.
