Arbois Pupillin is a wine appellation in the Jura region of France within the commune of Pupillin. Some very interesting "Vin Jaune" wines are produced here. The 'yellow' wines are matured for a long time in open vats protected by a crust of yeast that allows some oxidisation of the wine - hence producing the yellow colour. The wines subsequently develop a great character and longevity.
But there are also white wines and red wines produced from a variety of grapes including Poulsard noir (known locally as Ploussard), Trousseau, Savagnin blanc and Chardonnay (known locally as Melon d'Arbois or Gamay blanc).
