The Tissot family has been producing wine in the Jura since 1962, with Stéphane and Bénédicte taking the reins from his parents, André and Mireille. They have since acquired a formidable reputation as being among the region's top winemakers, farming biodynamically since 2004 and striving to express the character of the Jura terroir above all else. Domaine Stéphane et Bénédicte Tissot is in Arbois, a commune located within Jura, about 30 miles west of Switzerland. It's an insular area that specializes in unique renditions of both classic and little-known grapes. This blend of chardonnay, pinot noir, poulsard (a native, thin-skinned red grape that produces lighter wines), and trousseau (native to eastern France, makes deep wines with high alcohol and acidity) is a full-bodied bubbly that is a rich, deep gold in color, sparkling with streams of fine bubbles. It has opulent aromas of yeast, orchard fruit, citrus, and flowers and almonds on the palate supported by a lively, mineral-driven finish. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
