Tasting Notes

Château-Chalon opens with an aromatic expression of walnuts, mushrooms, with a background reminiscent of curry spices and lemon. Precise, powerful, complex, with intense flavors of nuts and walnuts balanced by citrus, with a soft peaty background.

France

Jura / Savoie

Jura and Savoie regions are two small wine regions in the far east of France, in the mountains bordering Switzerland. Most of the productions in both regions is white, with a growing trends towards red wine based on local grapes like Mondeuse, Trousseau, Poulsard, and Persan. Jura is renowned for its production of Vin Jaune.

Domaine André et Mireille Tissot

Cool to moderate mountain climate

Domaine André et Mireille Tissot

The soils in the Jura region are composed of Jurassic limestone, red and grey shale, clay and marl-stone. The Jurassic period was named after Jura because the region's limestone mountains are representative of the geological developments which occurred 145 million to 200 million years ago. As a result, two layers of shale, red and grey were covered with Bajocian limestone during the middle of this era.
