Alice Bouvot and Charles are the proud proprietors of 5 hectares of vines in the Arbois region of the Jura. They started their domaine in 2005 with just 2 hectares and over the years have bought small plots and slowly increased their production. On top of their warmth, the vineyards are equally as vibrant. 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.
The flavor is fully developed and very appealing. It has the color of a rosé but the weight and texture of a red wine making it a very versatile food wine but also perfect as an aperitif.
Harvested by hand. Semi-Carbonic 2 month maceration, spontaneous fermentation in tanks with indigenous yeast. Aged in tanks.
Farming:Organic/Biodynamic, Unfiltered/Unfined, No Added Sulfites
