2018 l'Octavin Pamina
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 2018 Pamina is certified biodynamic Chardonnay made from grapes sourced from 40 year old vines in the 'La Mailloche' vineyard.
There is a pleasant level of oxidative quality (from the time it has spent in old wooden barrels) in this beautifully balanced wine that displays hazelnuts and sherry aromas alongside a zing of citrus and vibrant minerality which is derived from the Jurassic marls in which the vines thrive.
