The axioms "rare-as-hens-teeth" and "unicorn-wine" are rarely more applicable than in the case of the wines of Benedicte & Stephane Tissot. Today we get to share with you a producer at the very zenith of artisanally made wine from around the globe.
These rare birds from the Jura are going to fly. We implore you, if you want to try these wines, buy and buy quickly. Stocks will not last.
"Stephane Tissot is one of the leading lights of Jura, and one of my favourite producers from the region."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
Andrew Jefford once described Stéphane as a "human firework", which sums up his irrepressible energy and tenacity perfectly. Stephane, along with his wife Benedicte are two of the most exacting and impassioned producers in the Jura today.
Their range spans the full gamut of the region: from delicious, toasty Cremant to laser-focused styles of Chardonnay and Savagnin; through their electric examples of Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau to their iconic terroir-driven Vin Jaune wines aged under flor. These wines have loudly proclaimed the quality and unique character of the Jura for many years. They are farmed biodynamically (Demeter certified), made in tiny and precise batches, and speak of each unique terroir under the Tissot banner in a unique voice.
"One of the finest producers in the region... Stéphane is its most extrovert ambassador."
- Jancis Robinson MW
"One of the finest French domaines in any region."
- Andrew Jefford (Decanter)
The wines of Tissot sit at the very pinnacle of the region. They are natural, they are living, they are wines of unwavering integrity and singular character. They offer a transcendent drinking experience that you won't find anywhere else. These are some of the hottest property out of Jura that hit Australian shores each year. Our allocations of the latest shipment hit the site just yesterday with two of the most limited labels selling out in a matter of minutes.
Fortunately, there are remaining stocks of the majority of their most popular cuveés. We are thrilled to be able to offer you these scarce and highly collectable benchmarks of the natural wine world.
