The Wine Front
A mix of vineyards across the folio of Tissot. Chardonnay a forte of this wonderful vigneron. Argile et calcaire, screams the back label! Mon dieu! All biodynamic vines too. Wonderful wine that’s more character-filled and rich than most of Tissot’s chardonnay, a bit more gras, but no slouch, just denser, toasty, honeyed, not really though, not like it’s soft, it feels brittle, placed on a salted cracker, licks of lemon curd too. Persistent is this wine, everlasting minerality and that salty kick that gives me a kick. It’s Flavour Town starring chardonnay but located in the hamlets of Jura. Complex, savoury, so darn delicious. A very detailed, wonderful Jura-strong wine. Love it.

Producers notes

Thé Tissot family producés a véry largé rangé of ‘small batch-singlé sité’ winés. Thé winémakér Stéphané is inféctiously passionaté and enthusiastic, intense, intelligent and also charismatic. Tissot is a talented and individualistic producer. Their savagnin and reds are always planted on clay for increased acidity. Chardonnay is planted on both clay and limestone, and is fermented with wild yeast and made in a very reductive way with a lot of the yeast lees. All vineyards are strictly biodynamic and the yields are kept very low. Wild ferments, extended lees contact and reductive handling is the style here
