Where and How?
Half of the vineyards are planted on 'trias' clay, which gives more body, and the other half on limestone, giving a linear stamp to the wine. This cuvée is named after Stéphan's father, André ('DD') and made how he used to make wines back in the day. The Pinot Noir is vinified with whole bunches for one month. The Poulsard and Trousseau grapes are destemmed by hand, and macerated for three months in a 100-year-old foudre. Aged for a short period of time to preserve freshness, and no sulfites are added at any stage. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
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.
