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.
This is a lovely, fresh, minerally white wine that is perfect with a wide range of food. Viognier’s hallmark aromatics of fruit and flowers with a compact, elegant structure that adds real interest.
Average age of vines is 20 years. Harvested by hand. Direct press, spontaneous fermentation in tanks with indigenous yeast. Aged in tanks.
Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfiltered/Unfined, No Added Sulfites
