"I prefer the 2017 Arbois Trousseau Amphore from the Poulsard in the amphora. It's from a ripe year, and the wine was bottled at 14.5% alcohol. But there are no confiture aromas, and there is good freshness and balance. This has some fine tannins and less earthiness than I expected. Drink: 2019-2023. 92 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!"
