Notes from the Importer: Evelyne and Pascal Clairet created their vineyard in 1991. They work 6-hectares of vines, from which they produce 12 cuvées. They make traditional wines in the traditions of Arbois, such as the Terre de Gryphons while also exploring new paths, such as the use of carbonic maceration in the Uva Arbosiana cuvée. Their methodology and passion is clearly invested in producing wines that represent the tradition and potential that this dynamic AOC possesses. The couple has now opened a little bistro in the center of the town of Arbois.
