Overview of the Wine
Domaine André et Mireille Tissot is a winery in Jura run by Bénédicte and Stéphane Tissot. It was founded in 1962 and has been cultivating its 35 hectares of vineyard, certified organic and biodynamic, for years. The winery is one of the benchmarks in the area. In total it produces some 28 references that seek to express the typical character of the grapes vinified and of their terroir.
The vineyards for Tissot Trousseau Singulier were planted between 1930 and 2002. They form five plots facing south and west. They are cultivated biodynamically and certified by Demeter, without using chemical products and are fertilised with compost produced by the winery itself. They are harvested manually in order to perform an initial selection of the best bunches in the field and to respect the grapes as much as possible when they are harvested and transported to the winery.
The Tissot Trousseau Singulier harvest is destemmed and vatted for a month in conical vats. Lastly, the wine is aged for one year in large 600 litre barrels, 10 % of which are new. Very little sulphite is used during the manufacturing process. The total annual production is approximately 7,000 bottles.
Tissot Trousseau Singulier is a wine that expresses what the Trousseau and its terroir have to offer.
The 'Singulier' is from biodynamically farmed Arbois vineyards of limestone. The vines are some of the oldest that belong to the estate. The grapes are destemmed and aged in barrel for 12 months before release.
