About The Wine

Intriguing and delicious, if you can snatch up a few of the bottles that come to Australia.

Tissot's Cremant du Jura is a powerful sparkling wine, mostly made from Chardonnay and Pinot, whose second fermentation is caused by the addition of their sweet Vin de Paille rather than sugar and yeast. This results in a long, long second ferment, developing layers of flavour.

There is no dosage at disgorgement as there is plenty of in-built richness. It's a bit nutty, a bit honeyed, a bit crunchy and a lot tasty.

About Benedicte & Stephane Tissot

Andrew Jefford once described Stéphane as a, "human firework", which sums up his irrepressible energy and tenacity perfectly. Stéphane, 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 his electric examples of Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau to their iconic oxidative 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.

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.

Additional Info

From The Importer

50% chardonnay, 40% pinot with 5% each of trousseau and poulsard partially aged in barrels. The yeast and sugar needed for the bottle fermentation is provided by the addition of a small amount of Vin de Paille, the famous and very sweet straw wine of the Jura (because the sugar content is so high in this type of wine there are viable populations of living but dormant yeasts). Zero dosage.

Blend : Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (40%), Poulsard (5%), Trousseau (5%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2027

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Crémant du Jura Indigène is from a lower yielding year and is a more powerful and concentrated wine. As 2017 was a difficult year with frost and he has very little vin de paille, he used some unfermented juice from vin de paille and some frozen grape juice he had kept for the second fermentation. This is still young and undeveloped, but in the long run, this might be one of the finest years for this serious cuvée. It was disgorged in April 2019 and will be sold at the end of 2019. " - Luis Gutierrez (The Wine Advocate)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
