About The Wine
The incomparable 'singulier' Trousseau grape...Purveyor of fine, lacy red wines and immense drinking pleasure.
This is a blend of Tissot's Trousseau from six separate Arbois terroirs all owned by Stephane and farmed biodynamically, Fruit is destemmed by hand, and matured in small barrels for one year following four weeks of maceration. Only the merest smidge of sulphur is added.
Generous, spicy, and more dark-fruited than may be expected. Plenty of density and faintly rustic tannin.
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.
