Variety: Pinot Noir
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.
Pinot Noir is usually more well-suited and well-known in Burgundy, but the Tissot family has changed the name of the Pinot game. This comes from a vineyard based in limestone, keeping this wine fresh and tense at the same time. After three weeks undergoing whole bunch maceration, the wine ages for one year in Burgundy barrels.
