2020 l’Octavin Hip Hip J… Chardonnay10866
WINEMAKER: Alice Bouvot
REGION: Jura, FR
VITICULTURE: Organic (In Conversion)
"The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were purchased by Alice from another Jura producer whose vines are currently undergoing conversion to organic with Agriculture Biologique. All of the grapes were directly pressed (as opposed to the previous year where 50% of the grapes were directly pressed and 50% underwent 6 weeks maceration) and the juice transferred to tank for fermentation." - Living Wines
Alice Bouvot started from scratch in 2004, buying a small cellar in the village of Arbois and a couple of hectares of vines in the hills surrounding. She now farms around five hectares biodynamically and harvests grapes from trusted friends all over France. A highly sought-after cult producer.
