Complex, savoury, so darn delicious.
About The Wine
If you're looking to get a glimpse at the phenomenal Chardonnays of Stephane Tissot, the Patchwork is your perfect place to start.
It's a blend of multiple blocks, all over 25 years of age, blend to take in both the clay and limestone terroirs that Stephane's Chardonnay vineyards occupy.
It's the base model of his Chardonnay, for sure, though many producers out would be over the moon to have a wine that is this flamboyant and rambunctiously delicious as their flagship.
Want to tangle with a Tissot but don't want to blow the whole budget on single bottle? Here's how you get your wick wet.
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.
