Jura Arbois: Vin de Paille Domaine Jean-Louis Tissot 2018

A glorious sweet wine ('Vin Liquoreux') that is produced by drying grapes over the winter on a bed of straw ('paille') in a loft. Subsequent pressing of the de-hydrated, honeyed grapes elicits flavours of candied fruits, caramel and orange. Serve lightly chilled. (37.5cl bottle).

Tasting Notes

The 'Vin de Paille' grapes must be dried for a minimum of 6 weeks on a bed of straw to naturally concentrate the juices. The fermented wine is aged for 3 years in barrel prior to release. Serve with dessert - ideally a tarte aux pommes - or on it's own as an aperitif.
