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.
“Les Bruyeres” comes from the vineyard of the same name with some seriously old vines, the oldest dating back to 1938. The wine is aged in 228 liter barrels for two full years, 20% of which are new. There is a very light addition of sulphur used to keep the purity of the wine. This bottle will age for another 10-20 years given the chance.
