Bénédicte & Stéphane Tissot

Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Pinot Noir

Another wonderful sparkler from Tissot. Like biting into the freshest apples. Lime zest, flowers (acacia, iris?) seashells, a little Jura oxidative twang, long finish. Throttles most champagne in the price range. Disgorged 2019 — 6 days ago

@Romain Fitoussi this wine is eating and drinking in one, to enjoy on its own. Perhaps a simple pain perdu...

Côtes du Jura Chardonnay Savagnin 2004

I dropped by my local yesterday afternoon and while I was there, I was offered a glass of something that was brought by another client. It turns out, a very generous one. The Jura is a very unique region and I have to admit that I rarely drink the wines but they are always something different and I love and respect that. This wine was a dark golden color that made me think this was a “Vin Jaune” which is the most famous wine of the region. It certainly smelled like it! We’re talking candied roasted nuts (you know the kind that you smell near mall food courts) with apricot, orange marmalade and exotic spices. Obviously made in a super oxidative style. Yet, this was labeled as Cote du Jura so technically I believe this is a “Vin Typés“ which is similar to “Vin Jaune” just not aged as much. On the palate, this was liquid dried apricots and finished dry and long with super acidity. I was nearly begging for cheese at this point! Fun to try something like this with so much age on it. Makes me wonder if these could last for decades if stored properly. — 10 days ago

Cuvée Les Berangères Arbois Trousseau 2011

Vintage 2011 | When it is hot weather, I find a Trousseau a nice wine. It has an elegant structure and there is a lot to enjoy and discover. Half transparant, a bit strange colour, tuilé, Italian tileroofs, but not bright, cloudy. The smell is awesome: roses, tobacco, lakritz, and after aeration in the glass also minerals, plums, a hint of cherries. The taste is licht but frivolous. Love this. Drank it four years ago, this bottle has aged and it seems to gain in attractiveness. ❤️ 💥 | Paired with toast and mushrooms, farmers Gouda cheese afterwards — 3 days ago

La Graviere Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2016

This wine is good — zippy, racy, snappy, salty, acid-driven, mouthwatering, creamy but fresh, expressive and concentrated, clean, pithy-fleshy fruit balance. Salty pineapples, lemongrass and green peppercorn, lime skins, lemonheads/preserved lemons, oysters. Reminds me of Envinate’s Benje and Palo Blanco. Nice aldehydes without being overly yeasty and nutty. Had with marinated anchovy cacio e pepe, zucchini flowers and orange zest. Killer pairing. — 14 days ago

Côtes du Jura Poulsard Blend 2014

I followed the instructions on the bottle & have this a few hours of slow ox. The nose is full of flowers, almond notes & fresh ripe berries. Darker berries on the palate with some higher tones across the finish. Ethereal weight, with ample structure. This is old school wine which ages beautifully and a producer I should drink more often.
