About Valérie Tissot Arbois Poulsard

Valérie Tissot Arbois Poulsard is a bright and earthy red from the Jura region. Cherry fruit, herbs, clove, and black pepper notes. Zingy finish. Poulsard is a red grape variety typical of the Jura region where it has developed since the 15th century. It is the most widespread red grape within the Domaine Tissot. The berries of this grape are excellent to taste because their skin is thin and they contain very few seeds. The wines obtained with this vine are among the clearest red wines in France: they are characterized by a medium-intensity color with beautiful orange reflections. Despite the light color, it is a wine present on the palate, thanks to a soft structure and the fruity aromas typical of the vine.

About Valérie Tissot

Sister and brother, Valérie & Jean-Christophe Tissot run this estate- but their retired parents Françoise and Jean-Louis lend them a willing hand!

The history of the area actually begins in 1965 at the wedding of Jean-Louis and Françoise Tissot Masson. Valerie had two grandparents closely connected with the wine business. Albert Piroutet, on her mother’s side, was one of the founders of the Arbois Fruitière in 1906 and was one of the strongest advocates for the Arbois to obtain the AOC in 1936. Françoise’s father, Albert Masson, also joined the cooperative and she inherited his vines to the pool with the 1.6 hectares that Jean-Louis inherited from his father Maurice Tissot. In the early years, Jean-Louis was part of the Fruitière too, but after planting 8 hectares of vines in 1990 they decided to start producing their own wines. In the early years, Jean-Louis was part of the Fruitière too, but after planting 8 hectares of vines in 1990 they decided to start producing their own wines. These days, Francoise and Jean-Louis are theoretically retired- but they’re never far from the daily activities of the farm. Françoise still helps with tastings and Jean-Louis in the vineyard.

Today the estate is ably run on lutte raisonnée principles by their children Valerie and Jean-Christophe. The domain, a 17-hectare estate, is situated in the heart of the AOC Arbois in the picturesque hillside village of Montigny-les-Arsures. Various parcels spread out over the municipalities, extending to a few additional hectares in Les Bruyères. And they produce the full gamut of Jura wines and spirits.
