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.
Vines are full of clay-limestone which makes for a wine full of good acidity and structure. It is fermented in stainless steel and then goes on to age for four months on the lees. Second fermentation begins, then the bottles age for 18 months before they’re disgorged and then released.
