About The Wine
Stéphane Tissot is one of the most exacting and impassioned producers in the Jura today.
With a range that spans the full gamut of the region: from delicious, toasty Cremant to laser-focused styles of Chardonnay, through the juicy examples of 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 region for many years.
These are wines of integrity and character, and offer incredible drinking that you won't find anywhere else.
This special bottling of Vin Jaune, the 'W', is aged in old whiskey casks from Michel Couvreur. Couvreur also makes a whiskey aged in old Tissot Vin Jaune casks in a melding of the two worlds. The whiskey influence on the finished wine is very low, it imparts just a little extra body and softens the edges. This rare release is seldom seen on Australian shores.
