2018 l'Octavin Ivre de Vivre
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.
Ivre de Vivre is 100% Viognier sourced from Jean Francois Debourg in the Bully region (which lies north-west of the city of Lyon) whose vines are in conversion to organic certification.
This is a lovely, fresh, minerally white wine that is perfect with a wide range of foods. It’s a freshness and liveliness you don’t normally associate with Viognier but definitely do associate with Alice’s wines.
