Stéphane Tissot is a tireless and vigorous promoter of individual sites and natural wines. He brings technological experience from his work in Australia and South Africa, and combines this with his ruthless yield reduction philosophy and very serious 'small batch' winemaking which is carried out as naturally as possible. Given Stéphane is constantly experimenting and obsessively seeking improvements; he is at the forefront of the Jura revolution and produces terroir-driven wines of depth, intensity, interest and undeniable quality.

The grapes hail from a limestone slope known as "les Corvées Sous la Tour", farmed biodynamically, and harvested by hand. They undergo a 3 week whole-cluster maceration and then mature for a year in Burgundy barrels. Bottled without sulfur or filtration.
