2018 l'Octavin Potion Magique
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.
Alice has made this wine from Poulsard, Chardonnay and Savagnin all harvested from Alice’s vines in the 'La Mailloche' vineyard on the outskirts of Arbois. While most of her estate wines are single variety she does blend occasionally, but always only if the grapes are from the same vineyard.
Part red wine, part macerated white. This is a truly unique wine – all three varieties are macerated together creating a wine with spice, white fruits and citrus.
