Benedicte & Stephane Tissot, Arbois Chardonnay Patchwork 2019Regular price $38.00 Save $-38.00
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.
Patchwork gets its name from the multitude of vineyards it draws its fruit from. Many would call this the winery’s flagship bottle, blending both the clay and limestone soils that represent the area of Arbois. This is not an oxidized style, but closer to that of a Premier Cru level of Puligny Montrachet.
