Benedicte & Stephane Tissot spearhead a benchmark domaine in the Jura region of France. Stephane was an early adopter of organic and then later biodynamic viticulture in the region as the Jura style modernized from its more "rustic" roots. The estate consists of about 35 ha of vineyards, which is quite large in the Jura, although relatively small compared to domaines in other parts of France.
"Our biodynamic work in the vineyards gives us pleasure and enables us to vinify our wines in a natural way that reflects our terroirs and our work, far from the industrial techniques that banalize wine." - Stephane Tissot
This elegant Crémant du Jura Rosé NV is made in the traditional method with 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Poulsard, and 20% Trousseau. No dosage, extra brut.
