Domaine André et Mireille Tissot

Address: Place de la Liberté, 39600 Arbois
Tel: 03 84 66 20 78 
Geo-coordinates:  Latitude: 46:54:12N (46.90333)    Longitude: 5:46:22E (5.77267) 

This domaine is run today by André and Mireille’s son, the dynamic and innovative Stéphane (catch-phrase “la vie est belle, n’est ce pas?”) and his wife Bénédicte. Stéphane runs the 50ha vineyards along biodynamic lines and is an enthusiastic advocate of these methods. There is an exemplary range of wines, on the expensive side, but very well made including an unusual range of Terroir-specific Vins Jaunes, a selection of site-specific top-class Chardonnays, some of the most intense reds in the Jura and sweet wines too that may or may not be allowed the appellation Vin de Paille; their Crémant du Jura range is good too. You can taste at their modern shop in the centre of Arbois (the address shown), but if you ask nicely you may secure an appointment to visit the winery in Montigny-les-Arsures and taste with one of the family at the tasting room there.

Useful information: Visits possible in the shop without an appointment. English spoken. Groups (maximum 25) can be received at the winery (Tel: 03 84 66 08 27).
