|Availability:||In stock (4)|
The Tissot family has been producing wine in the Jura since 1962, with Stéphane and Bénédicte taking the reins from his parents, André and Mireille. They have since acquired a formidable reputation as being among the region's top winemakers, farming biodynamically since 2004 and striving to express the character of the Jura terroir above all else. Arbois is a commune located within Jura, about 30 miles west of Switzerland. It's an insular area that specializes in unique renditions of both classic and little-known grapes. Fuller-bodied and dry, the Patchwork chardonnay comes from a blend of parcels planted on clay or limestone. Stéphane uses the blend to balance the fruit elements before aging in neutral oak and 10% new barrel to retain freshness. Unlike some of the other white wines from the region, Patchwork is not an oxidized wine. A chardonnay with personality to spare, this is a serious white, combining a briny tang, lip-smacking acidity, and luscious citrus and tropical fruits with a touch of creamy, buttery texture on the finish. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
