André and Mireille started this domaine in 1962. Their son Stéphane Tissot has been the driving force behind the dramatic resurgence of Jura wines over the last 20 years. His first vintage was 1989 at the age of 19 and his work in the cellar was immediately recognized by his peers. Stephane soon stopped adding yeasts for his fermentations and, after meeting Nady Foucault at Clos Rougeard, he began conversion to organic agriculture, one of the first in the Jura. The domaine was certified organic in 1999 and biodynamic in 2004 and new plantings were all done with massale selection rather than the clones then used throughout the region. He produced his first "Chardonnay de Terroir" in 1997 and In 2000 he was able to purchase great parcels in Les Bruyeres, La Mailloche and Chateau Chalon.
