Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming and Natural Wine
Wine making: Grapes are hand harvested from the vineyards of Domaine Trichon in Bugey. The fruit is given a direct press and ferments and ages in cuve for nine months.
A wine of effortless charm, with delicate scents of mandarin and white flowers and a clean, salty finish, it makes for a beautiful apéritif.
Alice Bouvot was trained in Bordeaux and Burgundy but when it came to starting her own domaine, the Jura would be the place. Since 2004 she has been farming a small parcel doing everything by hand retaining biodiversity throughout. She also buys grapes from trusted friends to create the large number of cuvees she makes each year. Approach in the winemaking evovles from the fruit that arrives each vintage. Nothing is added at any stage.
