Description
 
ABOUT: Residing in the commune of Montigny-Les-Arsures in the Jura region of France is Domaine Andre and Mireille Tissot and is currently being run by their son Stephane and his wife Benedicte. They converted the families 35 hectares to biodynamics a decade ago (they are Demeter certified) and have been producing a stunning range of unique wines ever since. These wines are truly authentic and domaine Tissot is considered one of the top producers of the region. Check out their website for more information.

TASTE: This 100% Chardonnay is from a tiny, rocky slope called Les Bruyeres on Tissot’s vineyard in the Jura. Within the dizzying selection of wines from the mega Tissot catalog, this single vineyard wine is a stand out show stopper. Aromas and flavors of dried fruits, lemon curd, yellow apples, pears, almonds, walnuts, cedar and salt. The acid is high and the body is rich and honey. Long finish. The acid is up there and leads me to believe there are many good years ahead for this Chardonnay. Drink now or stow it.

PAIR: Walnut and lemon pasta, wild mushroom risotto, chickpea salad, bianco pizza, Bechamel cheese sauce on anything, and an avocado strawberry goat cheese sandwich.
