Domaine Jacques Tissot

Address: 39 Rue de Courcelles, 39600 Arbois
Tel: 03 84 66 14 27 
Geo-coordinates:  Latitude: 46:54:20N (46.90559)    Longitude: 5:46:13E (5.77029) 

One of several related Tissots in the area, Jacques has a large (by Jura standards) estate and a big, green, rather ugly warehouse-like cellar (you will spot it from the viewpoints!) on the left-hand side of the main D1083 road running north out of Arbois. His son Philippe (already in his 40s) joined him on the estate a few years ago, but you get the sense that Jacques just won't let go! You can visit the shops in Arbois (at rue de Courcelles near the Maison Pasteur, or under the arcades at 32 Grande Rue) or arrange to visit the winery, which has a spacious and pleasant tasting area for groups. The domaine offers a huge range of wines of a very decent, consistent quality. A very easy place to stop by and taste, where you will be assured of a warm welcome - look out for some old and unusual Savagnins.

Useful information: The two shops are open seven days a week 09.15-12.15 and 14.15-19.00. Groups (up to 40) can be catered for by appointment with a small charge. English and German spoken.
