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. Arbois is 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. Poulsard, also known as ploussard, is a grape that is indigenous to the Jura. It has very thin skin with low amounts of color, so the resulting wines are very light, and it can even be used to make a white wine. This bottling from Tissot is light and fruity yet dry, with ripe red fruit and a hint of vanilla and spices on the nose with the palate showing balanced acidity and a touch of herbs on the finish. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
