The trousseau vines are grown on limestone and clay soils with some vines as old as 80 years old! Fermented in wood vats and macerated for weeks, then matured in 600lt barrels for 1 year and bottled with small amounts of SO2 and without filtration. It is one of the deeper and richer examples of trousseau you are likely to find, more pinot noir-esque. - 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.
