Bénédicte et Stéphane Tissot are a powerhouse winemaking couple based out of Arbois in the Jura region. Their perspective plays vital to the style of their wine. They favor natural wines as opposed to industrial ones, and wines that show off nature’s gifts versus winemaking. Their wines have been certified biodynamic by Demeter. Many of Jura’s wines go for an oxidative style; their wines are not this. They prefer a reductive style, the opposite of the local style. Their love is shown by their passion and their drive to make several different wines.
“Clos Tour de Curon,” many say is the best vineyard in the Jura region for growing white varieties. Others have even proclaimed this as one of the best sites for Chardonnay in the world. These vines come from the slopes surrounding the Tower of Curon in the village of Arbois. This is barreled for two years before its release, an exquisite wine reminiscent of Montrachet.
