2020 l'Octavin Hip Hip J… Poulsard Blanc10816
WINEMAKER: Alice Bouvot
REGION: Jura, FR
The Poulsard grapes used in this wine were purchased from a friend of Alice who grew the grapes in the Jura. This wine has been made from a direct press of red Poulsard grapes to produce a nicely-textured white wine.
The fermentation was, as always, carried out using only the native yeasts brought in on the grapes. The resulting wine was left in tank for almost 7 months to mature before being bottled in April 2021.
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.
