Tissot Cremant Indigene 2017
Tissot is one of Jura’s leading wineries, and the estate was founded in the 1960s. Today Benedicte and Stephane Tissot run it. They run their farm in a very hands on and labour intensive manner with 15 full time employees! They are biodynamic, only use natural yeasts and they firmly believe in the mantra of expressing the style of each vintage. This makes each new vintage an exciting discovery!
This is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau. The grapes come from a 3ha plot and instead of yeast to start the second fermentation in the bottle they use a dash of fermenting vin de paille (sweet straw wine). After 13 months on the lees it is disgorged without dosage or SO2 additions. Stone fruit with a honeyed character to it, but with a bone dry finish. Completely unique and delicious!
