Bénédicte et Stéphane Tissot "BBF" Crémant du Jura Non Dosé NV
Stéphane Tissot, who grew up on the estate, has been the driving force behind the dramatic resurgence of Jura wines over the past 20 years. André and Mireille, Stéphane’s parents, started the domaine in 1962—Stéphane remembers cleaning barrels as a kid (small enough to get in them!). His first vintage was 1989, at the age of 19, and his precise work in the cellar was immediately recognized by his peers, as Jura wines were then quite “rustic,” nothing like what is made today.
Stéphane soon stopped adding yeasts for his fermentations and, after meeting Nady Foucault at Clos Rougeard, he began conversion to organic agriculture, one of the first in the Jura. The domain was certified organic in 1999 and biodynamic in 2004, and new plantings were all done with massal selection rather than the clones then used throughout the region.
Made entirely from Chardonnay, “BBF” stands for blanc de blancs élevé en fût, or blanc de blancs aged in oak barrels. Based on two different vintages, the wine was fermented in barrel, bottled with no dosage, and spent 52 months on the lees before disgorgement.
