Arbois "Blanc typé" 1988 - Tissot
Jacques Tissot created his estate in 1962, after inheriting a plot from his father. The first vintage of yellow wine produced was released in 1969.
The farm now extends over thirty hectares, divided into AOX Arbois and Côtes du Jura.
The Domaine works in sustainable cultivation, that is to say that they use the minimum of phytosanitary products, respecting the vines as much as possible, thanks to tillage and grassy plots thus preserving biodiversity.
The vinification is traditional, with passage in barrels and oak tuns, from 12 to 30 months, but also modern with the use of thermo-regulated vats.
The plots consist of old vines with an average age of 36 years and young plants.
The Jacques Tissot estate produces Poulsard, Trousseau, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Savagnin, Vin Jaune, Crémant du Jura, Vin de Paille, as well as its November Harvest, the 249 JT, a Macvin du Jura .... And its particularity is that it keeps old vintages in old cellars.
The prestige and know-how of the domain are well established, the domain reaping around twenty awards a year, proof of its regularity.
This cuvée d'Arbois "Blanc Typé" is still produced today and is made up of 70% chardonnay aged in tuns before blending and 30% savagnin aged under veil for 36 months.
Tasted in December 2021 (1988 or 1989 vintage impossible to know) this wine seems immortal, not the slightest oxidation, a beautiful freshness and fatness. A balance worthy of certain great wines from the Côte de Beaune.
