2020 Benedicte et Stephane Tissot Arbois Chardonnay "Patchwork", Jura, France

This wine has a beautiful expression of stone fruits and honey enhanced by lovely spices in the background. Crunchy, yet rich attack followed by a lovely minerality and fruits notes over a long finish.



Patchwork is made from Chardonnay grown on clay-limestone soils, and whose average age varies between 20 and 50 years. After a manual harvest, fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts, and the vinification is carried out in barrels, 10% of which are new. Aging lasts 12 months in oak barrels.


Domaine André et Mireille Tissot is considered as one of the emblematic Domain from Jura, nowadays the vineyard is led by Bénédicte and Stéphane Tissot. This family business is at the top of the appellation. In order to achieve the maximum expression of the terroirs, the 35 hectares are cultivated in Biodynamic viticulture. This allows the soils to live, to have grapes untouched by chemical products, to allow natural yeast fermentations and to reduce the doses of sulphur in the cellar. Here the wines are handcrafted by the winemakers, and any industrial process is banned.
