Domaine Jacques Tissot - Jura AOC
Jacques and Michelle TISSOT created the Domaine in 1962 with a plot inherited from his father, and the first vintage of vin jaune was bottled in 1969, a legendary year. The Domaine now covers 30 hectares in the Arbois, Arbois-Pupillin and Côtes du Jura appellation areas. Their children, Philippe and Nathalie, joined them a few years ago.
The domaine employs integrated vine-growing methods: minimised use of vine protection products made possible by tillage and leaving grass between the rows of vines. The return of numerous types of insects and increased biodiversity is a sure sign that nature is coming back to life in the vineyards.
Every year the Domaine boasts a collection of awards (on average 20) for its traditional and innovative products.
