The Jura: that tiny and elusive pocket of land separated between Burgundy and Switzerland that produces hauntingly exquisite wines of power, finesse and complexity. Among the small number of producers, stands Domaine Tissot. 

The History

Stéphane Tissot, who grew up on the estate has been widely regarded as the driving force behind the dramatic rise in prestige of Jura wines over the last 20 years. André and Mireille, Stéphane’s parents, founded the Domaine in 1962. Stéphane took over from his father at the age of 19 with his first vintage in 1989. His talent was immediately recognized by his peers and Domaine Tissot took off.

The Philosophy

When it comes to wine, Bénédicte and Stéphane believe that each gesture, operation and decision has importance. It is the "life force" of natural wines that guides their practice and allows for no two wines to be the same.

Domaine Tissot owns a small 35 hectares within some of the most exceptional terroirs in Jura: Les Bruyères, La Mailloche, En Barberon and Curon.

In the beginning of the 1990’s, the work was essentially focused in the cellar. But quickly, they understood that their influence in the cellar had its limits. To truly change the wines and to get the most out of their land it was necessary to do more work in the vineyard to improve the health of their soils and vines. Several years after his first vintage Stéphane began converting their vineyards to Organic agriculture, making them among the first in the region to do so. The Domaine was certified Biodynamic in 2004.

All new plantings have been done with massale selection, rather than with the clones often being used throughout Jura.

Stéphane wants his wines to be as natural as possible and to express the singular plots of vines that the wines are crafted from. To achieve this expression of terroir and diversity, he makes 22 different cuvées, separating out tiny, unique parcels, indigenous varietals and different fermentation vessels in his bottlings. Tissot’s wines are bottled unfined, unfiltered and with very minimal (if any) addition of sulphites.
