Chardonnay

Where and How?

This biodynamic Chardonnay comes from six different vineyards (Rosières,
Béranger, en Muzard, Corvées, Chevrettes and Corvées sous Curon). They are on limestone soils and 'lias' clay, facing south and west, and were planted between 1952 and 1976, with one parcel planted in 2002.
The grapes are hand harvested, pressed directly in a pneumatic press, and the juice ferments naturally. The wine then ages in 228L barrels (12% new) for 24 months; gaining in complexity. A very small amount of sulfites are used (below 20mg/L).

The Winemaker: Domaine Tissot

Stéphane Tissot believes that great emotion can be found in a bottle of wine. That emotion, however, he reminds us adamantly can only be transported to the glass from vineyards that are farmed organically. He underlines that wine is not a necessity: it isn’t like corn or wheat which is essential for food production. This makes us think in ways we haven’t thought before; there really should be no excuse for chemically treated, unhealthy, unhappy vineyards.
He also believes that the wine he makes reflects his personality. As he changes and grows, so do his wines. He is a man that never stands still, but continues his quest of trying to improve his wines, year on year.
