Benedicte & Stephane Tissot, Arbois Trousseau Singulier 2019Regular price $42.00 Save $-42.00
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.
Singulier is made exclusively from the Trousseau variety grown in five different parcels. These are some of the oldest estate vines dating back to the year 1930. The fruit is all destemmed to show the purity and freshness of the fruit. The wine ages in barrels for one month before its release. Think of a red fruited, juicy Pinot Noir with a slight orange peel influence you might get from Nebbiolo; that would be Trousseau.
