It’s such a complex, compelling, delicious wine. Kowtow at the throne.
About The Wine
Les Bruyeres is a warm, south-facing site within the Arbois AOC that has a vein of blue marl running throughout. It produces big, powerful Chardonnays held firmly in place by ringing acidity and a dashing mineral line.
Spice, structure, salinity - all dominate the palate, along with dense citrus fruit, nicely layered like a Tissot trifle of goodness. Deserves a 'wow'.
Certified organic and biodynamic fruit, fermented and raised in barrel.
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.
