The Tissot family has long made wine, while also growing other crops and raising some livestock, at their estate in Vaux-en-Bugey. In 2001, with his oenology degree in hand, Thierry Tissot came home to take over the estate. He decided to focus exclusively on making quality wine and hatched a plan to revive a forgotten vineyard. The old-timers talked about a hillside called Mataret, a vineyard site once known for making legendary wines. Three hectares of clay calcareous soils with veins of shale facing southwest, at 350m elevation, and overlooking the village, this site had been completely abandoned and was covered in chestnut trees and dense brush.
Thierry set his mind to making great wines at this spot once again. He cleared the hillside and planted it with Altesse and Mondeuse, two indigenous varietals in which he has great faith. Though the vines are still young, the wines produced from this site already show great depth and complexity. The potential here is tremendous.
Made from Gamay and Mondeuse, this Rosé is bursting with notes of raspberry, cherry, plum and grapefruit. The long finish is juicy, yet dry and refreshing. Perfect for an afternoon chat with a friend or along side a rich chocolate dessert!
