Bénédicte & Stéphane Tissot Arbois Traminer

Bénédicte & Stéphane Tissot Arbois Traminer


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Savagnin

Vintage: 2018

The domaine of Bénédicte & Stéphane Tissot is widely regarded as one of the very best in Jura, and the Tissot family more generally is widely known in the region for its long tradition of winemaking. Bénédicte & Stéphane converted the domaine to organics in 1999 and biodynamics shortly after, with the focus on pure expressions of terroir. The whites are characterised by a signature smoky reductive quality on the nose and immense power on the palate while the reds are fragrant and ethereal.

This is Savagnin made in the topped up or 'ouille' method. The Tissot style is towards the riper fuller side and this is gloriously open with a few years age, showing intense lemon curd, poached pear, baking spice and toast aromas.
