"One of three reds without sulfur, the 2018 Arbois Rouge DD is a blend of the three grapes from Jura. It's a light red wine they produce to drink in the summer and is full of juicy red fruit, with a light to medium-bodied palate and a pleasant bitterness on the finish. It's dry and very appropriate for food. He tries to make very clean and precise wines in the non-sulfur line, and here it shows a more delicate and fruit-driven style. The Pinot Noir is fermented with stems, and the Trousseau and Pulsar are destemmed. They make 30,000 bottles of this. Drink: 2019-2022. 91+ points

I spent a fantastic morning with Stéphane Tissot, doing a short running tour of the vineyards (as he does) and then tasting the wide portfolio of his wines. Crémant is 30% of the volume in the Jura and a little less at Tissot but still quite significant. He has 50 hectares of vines and selects vineyards for the crémant and still wines, so this helps to improve the quality of the still wines. I always try to save enough time, but it's never really enough. I feel that we devoted a lot of time to the ouillé Chardonnays (which is great, because they are among the best in Jura), but then we need to rush when the vin jaune arrives, which is probably the one that needs more time to develop in the glass and show itself. Plus he's the only one currently, as far as I know, making vin jaune from different soils. I will devote a full day next time to make sure I do justice to the vin jaunes and other special wines that we tend to taste at the end and so that I don't need to run to the following appointment. Promised Stéphane!"
