2018 l'Octavin Elle Aime
Alice Bouvot's l'Octavin is consistently one of the most dynamic estates in the Jura. She makes an incredible variety of wines, either from her own vineyards around the town of Arbois, or from her friend's grapes further afield.
The grapes for this wine were harvested from Alice’s vines in the 'En Arces' vineyard near the Jura village of Arbois. The wine is made from Pinot Noir 75% and 25% Chardonnay. The grapes underwent whole cluster maceration for 2 months, before being bottled in July 2019 almost 10 months after the grapes were harvested.
