Health crisis requires: no breakthrough in yellow wine in 2021; not even a symbolic breakthrough in the spring as intended for a while. Another blow to the profession. But some winemakers couldnt come to terms with giving up. They decided to make a good heart against bad luck by opening their cellars to the public this Saturday January 6th to discover the 2014 vintage.
Burgundians love Jura wines
'We couldnt come to terms with the blows of fate,' said JoÃ«l Morin, President of the FruitiÃ¨re Vinicole dArbois. Our stores are open and we have organized a very small number of tastings for our customers by invitation, respecting the barrier gestures. Passionately used to wine and used to the Saint Vincent tournament in Burgundy, Yohann purposely thought he was going to take part in his second yellow wine breakthrough. 'When I found out that producers were organizing tastings in Arbois, I didnt hesitate,' he admits. Working in a domain in Beaune does not prevent you from appreciating the Arbois wines and the special grape varieties such as Savagnin, Trousseau and Poulsard. ''
The Burgundians therefore seem particularly sensitive to the charm of Arbois. Marie-Paule and HervÃ© from Gevrey-Chambertin, who are in the same FVA store, or the RÃ©berol family from Montceau-les-Mines, who did their shopping under the arcades, are with Jacques Tissot. â€œWe didnt want to miss this day of discovery at any cost. Usually we organize a minibus from home with friends for the breakthrough. This year there were only four of us and one car. But we love to find inventive and welcoming winemakers who make us discover their products. What a shame that no restaurant can open, especially in Arbois! We also have to leave at 3 p.m. to respect the curfew. ''
Cellars open this Sunday
Delphine, Ã‰lise and Ã‰milien, three young people from Ornans, have been regular guests at La PercÃ©e since 2007. They spent their day with local producers: the FVA and Domaine Rolet had a snack in the morning. 'Out of the bag'. . Damien Petit welcomes you that afternoon in his cellar in Pupillin. â€œYour visit was scheduled by email. I understand the ambassadors reluctance to organize open days. With these receptions by appointment, we have made all the necessary arrangements. â€œThe cellars are open this Sunday.
