Region: Jura, FRA
Renaud Bruyère and Adeline Houillon are young winemakers from the Jura who produce a beautiful, light, ethereal Ploussard and a lovely blended, topped-up white wine made from Chardonnay and Savagnin. They are a very small producer with only 4.5 hectares of low-yielding vines, so their production is tiny.
Their vineyards for the red wine are near the tiny village of Pupillin which sits on the hills above the main town of Arbois. When you drive into this village you see a sign proclaiming it as the “World Capital of Ploussard”.
