Top 10 wines in the UK press

Bénédicte and Stéphane Tissot, Savagnin, Jura

SavagninDavid Williams tells his readers in The Observer, about what he describes as a “Marmite white”. He wrote: “I love it because it reminds me of dry sherry: though it’s not as strong, it has the same intensely nutty, salty savoury character, which it gets from ageing in barrels, like fino sherry, under a layer of yeast, for the better part of three years. Others hated it for the same reason.”

  2. Hi David

    I am importing my son-in-law’s Savagnin/Chardonnay blend (grown organically-en conversion- fully AB this year). Patrice is a fellow Arbois /Pupillin producer of the famous Tissots, and also produces unoaked Savagnin- by no means a Marmite wine!- although not yet an oaked. I can obtain either for you. As an importer for the family vineyard, I am not taking any cut myself. Domaine Hughes Beguet is listed on half-a-dozen Michelin-starred wine lists in France and an AA 5 rosette restaurant (Red, white and Rose) in the UK, amongst many others.
