    Information about domain Follin-Arbelet

    Franck Follin-Arbelet comes from a family of Aloxe-Corton who previously owned plots located in prestigious appellations but he is the first descendant to devote himself to viticulture and vinification. His geology studies in Montpellier have given him a fine understanding of the terroirs. He develops real wines, using agriculture which is close to organic, sublimated by natural vinification and well-controlled élevage.
