Tissot Poulsard Vieilles Vignes comes from two plots of old, biodynamically grown vines with an average age of 68 years. They do not use any herbicides or plant protection products. Instead, they use organic fertiliser that they make on the estate, as well as infusions of plants, sulphites and copper. The grapes are harvested manually and placed in boxes. The grapes go through a strict selection process and are manually destemmed. They then ferment and macerate for 3 months in old French oak tanks. The wine then ages in 600-litre French oak barrels (10% new oak) until being bottled.Tissot Poulsard Vieilles Vignes is a biodynamic red wine that is rich in fruit, fine in acidity and with an incredibly long finish for having such a light color.
Domaine Stéphane Tissot has for years already become an essential reference for Jura wines. Maurice Tissot, father of André Tissot and grandfather of Stéphane, owned 3 hectares of vines (vinified in a cooperative) and 25 hectares of agricultural land. He decided in 1956 to plant vines for each of his four sons: Jacques, Jean-louis, Daniel and André. The latter inherits 38 ares, which will become the André and Mireille Tissot estate, now run by their son Stéphane.
Stéphane Tissot is a rebellious spirit who appropriates traditions while sublimating them. After studying Viticulture & Oenology, he joined his father in the family estate in 1989. He gradually takes over the management of the estate and adopts organic farming in 1999, then goes into biodynamic in 2004. They now have 43 hectares planted with classic grape varieties from the Jura: Savagnin, Chardonnay, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir.
