The poulsard vines were planted between 1942 and 1972, the fruit was macerated for 3 months followed by 3 months elevage in clay amphore. Whilst poulsard is often seen as the 'rose grape', in the hands of Tissot it has a little more vibrancy, colour and fleshiness with nicely structured tannins for a light red. Bottled with low SO2 and without filtration. - Importer Note
You won't find a producer more passionate about the Jura region and its wines than Stéphane Tissot.
Founded in the 1960s, the Domaine consists of 32 hectares spread across Arbois and the Cotes du Jura. All of the vineyards are farmed biodynamically, reflecting Stéphane's belief in the benefits of natural processes. Combined with his ruthless yield reduction philosophy and 'small batch' approach to winemaking, the wines produced are some of the most pure, serious and exciting expressions of the Jura.
In the winery, everything is carried out naturally with little to no sulphur used. Stéphane is constantly experimenting and obsessively seeking improvements to both viticulture and vinification, striving to capture the greatest expression of his vineyards in every glass. His passion is evident. And so to the quality of his wines, which are leading the charge in the Jura revolution.
