Tasting Notes

This is a lovely wine! Alice purchased Sylvaner grapes from Philippe Brand in Alsace to make it. As always, she and her team harvest the grapes and take them back to the Jura in small crates. The whole bunch grapes were macerated for two months prior to pressing and then bottled in July 2019. This is a beautiful orange wine with a lovely texture. It is 12% alcohol. The vineyard is certified organic by Ecocert. - Importer Note

The l'Octavin wines are lovingly crafted by Alice Bouvot in her Arbois winery using organic grapes from her 3.5 hectares of vineyards scattered around the outskirts of that beautiful town. The vineyards, which include some of the best lieu dits (a lieu dit is a named place that has official recognition in France) available including En Curon, La Mailloche, Les Nouvelles and Les Corvées are certified organic by Demeter as are her winemaking methods. There are absolutely no additions to the wines. It is fermented grape juice with the fermentation carried out by the indigenous yeasts. She does not add sulphur at any stage nor do they filter or fine the wines. Octavin are also certified biodynamic by Demeter. Octavin produces a bewildering array of wines in the tiny winery. Some are classical Jura wines such as the Pamina Chardonnay or the Dorabella Poulsard, while others are fascinating wines with a 'twist' such as the Culrond Poulsard which is vinified as a white wine even though the grapes are red or the Zerlina which is a blend of Trousseau with Pinot Noir. - Importer Note
