Domaine de L’Octavin

Arbois, Jura



One of Alice’s oddball experiments and as usual, it just works. This is a blend of roughly 45% Pinot Noir and 55% Chardonnay from 70 year old vines planted over Jurassic marls in Les Nouvelles. The white and red grapes are kept in whole bunches and fermented together on the skins for eight months before ageing in old oak for a year. Reflecting the vintage, this is generous and plush. A real joy to drink.
