Benedicte & Stephane Tissot, Cremant du Jura Rose Extra Brut NVRegular price $34.00 Save $-34.00
Variety: Pinot Noir, Trousseau, and Poulsard
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.
Combining the efforts of the traditional red varieties of the region, this cremant undergoes the direct press method going on to ferment in stainless steel. After the second fermentation begins, the wine ages in bottle for 18 months before it’s disgorged and then released.
