About Valérie Tissot Arbois Trousseau

Valérie Tissot Arbois Trousseau is a light, spicy red wine from pure Trousseau – a grape that thrives on the slopes around Arbois. Earthy, with notes of red berries, spices, and a hint of smokiness. The wine has a distinct character that sets it apart from other red varietals. Trousseau likes soils made up of gravel which this area is rich in: this terroir constitutes a treasure chest of sweetness for Trousseau which allows it to give its best, especially on the south-east facing slopes of the hills. A red wine of high lineage and great aging potential that knows how to combine fruit and tannins. Its youthful aromas, reminiscent of young cherries, evolve towards notes of black cherry with aging.

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.
