Clean, acidic, bright and dry; balanced and complex. Absolute magic.
Made from the rare Molette grape picked in the vineyards of Domaine Trichon in Bugey. The fruit is given a direct press and ferments and ages in cuve for nine months. A wine of effortless charm, with delicate scents of mandarin and white flowers and a clean, salty finish, it makes for a beautiful apéritif.
Alice Bouvot of Domaine De L'Octavin trained in winemaking in Bordeaux and Burgundy but chose the Jura region as the home for her first cellar, and the couple of hectares of rolling hills as the backdrop for her vines. Her vineyard work is done by hand and is both fanatical and fantastic, with biodynamic farming used to great effect in retaining a real biodiversity in the vineyard. Now Alice harvests grapes at friends' properties all across France aiding her in making an exciting range of wines that we love!
