Tissot Cremant Du Jura

July 2013

“A wine made with love and passion produces an emotion…The industrialization of wine is the end of its identities, its nuances, its characteristics which are part of the magic of a bottle.” This raison d’etre makes Domaine Tissot one of the most progressive estates in Arbois. Andre and Mireille Tissot established the domaine in 1962 and their son Stephane took over in 1990 after working at wineries in Australia and South Africa. Stephane is responsible for transforming the winery to total organic production in 1999 and to bio-dynamic winemaking in 2004. While producing a wide range of traditional Jura wines, Tissot makes wines that find a balance between terroir and their unique house style. Their Cremant du Juras is no exception. Made in the traditional style, the Extra Brut Blanc is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, while the Extra Brut Rosé throws in the Jura grape Plousard. Tissot’s Cremants, in the words of Wine Advocate, “remain among the finest traditional method sparklers for the money grown anywhere in the world.”  You don’t have to worry about the money at Vinopolis, we’ve got the best price in the US on both the Blanc and the Rosé.
