Domaine de l'Octavin 'Hip Hip J' Savagnin Maceration 2020
Producer: Alice Bouvot
Notes: Alice Bouvot is the proud proprietor of 5 hectares of vines in the Arbois region of the Jura. Alice started her domaine in 2005 with just 2 hectares and over the years have bought small plots and slowly increased their production. Some of our favorite winery visits are with Alice and her adorable sons. On top of her warmth, the vineyards are equally as vibrant. L’Octavin is now Demeter biodynamic certified and she works 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 her wine.
Since 2009 all L’Octavin wines are “pur jus”, with no additives whatsoever.
Savagnin from Arbois, macerated as whole bunches for two months, followed by a year of rest in cuve and then a short élevage in large oak casks.
