Description

Stéphane’s Trousseau is hand-destemmed before undergoing carbonic maceration for three weeks in a tronconic wooden tank. This is followed by another two weeks of gentle maceration, with occasional pigeage. The result is a wine which possesses aromas of beautifully pure crushed strawberry fruit and delicate garrigue herbs. The palate is fresh and energetic, with crunchy strawberry and a hint of spice. This is a wonderful wine which leaves you salivating for the next sip.

Drink now to 2026.

About this WINE

Domaine Tissot

Domaine Tissot

The lower slopes of the Jura mountains are among the most beautiful parts of viticultural France. They form the eastern flank of the Saone valley, mirroring the Côte d’Or across the way. It is a shame that their wines are much less well known.

Two main white grapes are used, Savagnin and Chardonnay, to make different styles of wine. The barrels of Savagnin are not topped up, so they become lightly and deliberately oxidised, though the wine is saved from spoilage by the formation of a film of yeast known as ‘flor’ on top of the wine, as also happens with fino sherry. Unusual but exciting wine.

The Chardonnay barrels are kept topped up, but even so the wines tend to offer a hint of the same nutty character on top of the more classic outline of the Chardonnay grape.

Stéphane Tissot is a leading grower in the wine appellation of Arbois, where he farms his vineyards biodynamically and is rare in offering single vineyard bottlings such as Les Bruyères.

Arbois

Arbois

Arbois is the most important appellation in Jura and the largest along with Côtes du Jura. Home of one of the fathers of microbiology, Louis Pasteur, the appellation takes its name from the small town of Arbois, which is nestled away in the verdant Jura countryside.

The harshness of Arbois’ winters can be an impediment to wine growers but this doesn’t stop the production of some notable wines. The appellation makes wines of a variety of styles:

  • Dry whites (in the traditional oxidative or modern aromatic style) from Chardonnay and the region’s signature grape, Savagnin
  • Light, fresh, dry reds from Pinot Noir, Trousseau, or Poulsard
  • And the regional specialities vin jaune (medium sweet) and vin de paille.
