Alice’s iconic Chardonnay comes from a parcel of forty year old vines planted over Jurassic marls in La Mailloche. Pressed directly, it spent eighteen months ageing in old barrels. Showing the site’s pedigree, every little detail is in place and this is exactly the kind of lean, crystalline Chardonnay that made us fall in love with the Jura in the first place.

Notes on the producer

Despite having trained in Bordeaux and Burgundy, Alice Bouvot knew that when it came to start her own domaine, the Jura would be the place. In 2004 she started from scratch, buying a small cellar in the village of Arbois and a couple of hectares of vines in the hills surrounding. L’Octavin is now Demeter biodynamic certified and they work to convey this message to the fullest. Wild grasses, weeds, insects, and animals all have a place in their vines creating a true ecosystem that gives a deeper meaning to each glass of their wine. Since 2009 all L’Octavin wines are "pur jus", with no additives whatsoever.
