About The Wine
The Tissot Savagnin is one of the benchmarks of the Jura region.
It takes 33 months in barrel under flor (‘Sous Voilé’) to reach the point of bottling. When it's ready, it's one of the great drinking experiences - a cavalcade of round, toasty fruit and nuts, a sweeping cloud of sea spray, and a pure, intense saline minerality which drives hard and long through the palate.
The Tissot is a touchstone of the style, it delivers year-in, year-out.
If you want to know why the 'white' wines of Jura are becoming increasingly more sought-after, the Tissot Savagnin is the ultimate place to start.
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.
