Dry, elegant cremant that is made as naturally and traditionally as possible withouth sacrificing balance or form.

The Tissot family has been making wine in the Jura for decades — Stéphane's father André started the domaine in 1962. Stéphane's first vintage was in 1989, at the tender age of 19, and almost immediately thereafter he decided to eschew commercial yeasts and pursue organic farming (although the domaine has been certified biodynamic since 2004). Chez Tissot, the goal is to illustrate the region's unique terroir, and to that end, they vinify as many as 28 different cuvées, determined parcel by parcel according to the soil. The small production wines are marked by elegance and freshness, in styles that range form sparkling and still to the signature Vin Jaune of the region.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Bright yellow. Herbal pear and peach scents are complicated by vanilla and chamomile. Pure and dense in the mouth, offering toasty citrus and orchard fruit flavors brightened by juicy acidity and a lively mineral vein. BBF stands for Blanc de Blanc en Fût, which means a barrel-aged Chardonnay, in this case from the 2009 and 2008 vintages. From a mix of clay and limestone soils, it lingers with surprising tenacity." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 93
"The NV Cremant du Jura BBF Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs smells like a serious Champagne. It is a blend of 2008 and 2009; the 2008 matured for 14 months in barrique and the 2009 only in tank. This is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The wine was kept for some five years on the lees before disgorgement. It has a smoky character, lots of notes of baked bread and brioche, as well as creamy texture and great length. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to follow up on these non-vintage wines, but this bottle can surely age." -Robert Parker

WS 91
"Plump at the core, with bracing cut along the edges, this delivers apple, ginger, walnut and brioche notes, with a broad mousse on the finish. Shows good range and length."
