Region: Jura, France
Grape varieties: 40% Pinot Noir, 30% Poulsard, 30% Trousseau
Since Stéphane Tissot’s arrival on the family estate in 1990, the property, indeed the whole of the Jura, has seen an unmatched leap in quality. The winemaker and his wife Bénédicte demonstrate a thirst for experimentation and a profound respect for their terroir which comes through in the variety of what they produce, all the more impressive considering the size of their vineyard. Their efforts to bring the best out of each micro-climate are rewarded by our desire for their pure and flavourful wines. There is no longer any doubt that this domain will be inscribed in the history of wine.
The domain might still carry the name of his parents, but Stéphane Tissot (and his wife Bénédicte) took over the family business over 20 years ago. In 1995, Stéphane began to reduce the amount of fertilizer so as to pave the way for organic viticulture. Around this time he also stopped using chemical herbicides altogether. In 1999, the then 28 hectares (now 46 hectares) became entirely organic and, after a few years, the whole domain became biodynamic in 2004 (Demeter certification). Stéphane’s hard work has transformed the quality of the grapes. With such good quality fruit, vinifications are relatively easy and require very little intervention. Natural yeasts are used in fermentation and a very small amount of sulphites are added, nothing else.

More About This Wine
From the winery:
A wine made with love and passion produces an emotion…You can find in wine the personality and the character of those who made it because each gesture, each operation, each decision has its importance.
The “life force” is so well constructed that if we speak of natural wines, you will not find two wines that are the same anywhere in the world, as opposed to industrial wines which are all similar.
The industrialization of wine is the end of its identities, its nuances, its characteristics which are part of the magic of a bottle.
The work we do at our domaine, it is, in a way, the summary of all that.
Exceptional terroirs like Les Bruyères, La Mailloche, En Barberon, Curon.
An attempt to achieve the maximum expression of those terroirs: our 35 hectares of vineyards are cultivated in bio-dynamic viticulture (certified by Demeter) to allow the soils to live, to have grapes untouched by chemical products, to allow natural yeast fermentations, to reduce the doses of sulfur in the cellar. This quest for aromatic diversity has lead us to produce 28 different cuvées, often terroir by terroir, with lots of innovations which take into account the incredible diversity of the vineyards of the Jura.
The way we work requires lots of effort on the part of our team. 15 people work full-time all year long aided by several students in the summer and in September, by 50 harvesters.
Finally, we have many new projects, from the creation of new cuvées to replanting vineyards like the Clos de la Tour de Curon, without forgetting our desire to constantly increase the quality of the wines which is our principal motivation.
