L'Octavin Reine de la Nuit 2018 (Pre-Order)

Estimated Delivery Date: 1st November 2020

 

This is a blend of roughly three quarters Chardonnay and one quarter Savagnin from forty year old vines planted over Jurassic marls in La Mailloche. The grapes were given a direct press straight to cuve for a year of élevage. This is the first time we’ve tried this wine without maceration and it is a remarkable expression of this great terroir, displaying a tightrope balance of power and poise, this will reward drinkers for many years to come.

 

The l’Octavin wines are lovingly crafted by Alice Bouvot in her Arbois winery using organic grapes from her 3.6 hectares of vineyards scattered around the outskirts of that beautiful town.

 

The vineyards, which include some of the best lieu dits (a lieu dit is a named place that has official recognition in France) available including En Curon, La Mailloche, Les Nouvelles and Les Corvées are certified organic by Demeter as are her winemaking methods.

 

There are absolutely no additions to any of the wines. It is fermented grape juice with the fermentation carried out by the indigenous yeasts. She does not add  sulphur at any stage nor does she filter or fine the wines. Octavin is also certified biodynamic by Demeter.

 

Octavin produces a bewildering array of wines in the tiny winery. Some are classical Jura wines such as the Pamina Chardonnay or the Dorabella Poulsard, while others are fascinating wines with a ‘twist’ such as the Culrond Poulsard which is vinified as a white wine even though the grapes are red or the Zerlina which is a blend of Trousseau with Pinot Noir.
