Description

Alice Bouvot is the proud proprietors of 5 hectares of vines in the Arbois region of the Jura. She started her domaine in 2005 with just 2 hectares and over the years has bought small plots and slowly increased her production. On top of their 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 her 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. The grapes are destemmed by hand and fermented without the use of SO2, cultured yeasts, or other additives. Most of the wines are fermented and aged in fiber glass or steel tanks, but only at the ambient temperature of the cave. Most of L’Octavin wines are made to reflect single plot expression.
