Elle Aime 2018 (1.5 L)
Alice Bouvot and Charles are the proud proprietors of 5 hectares of vines in the Arbois region of the Jura. 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.
A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted next to one another over limestone and marl in ‘En Arces’ in Arbois. The two varieties were destemmed and infused for two months before being pressed and returned to cuve for a year of élevage. A vivid cherry-red in the glass, it has an almost weightless, ethereal quality, marrying gentle notes of red berries, earth and minerals to beautiful effect.
