Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming and Natural Wine
Wine making: Grapes are hand harvested from a parcel in Carpentras. Fermented as whole bunches for three weeks.
With varietal notes of black fruits and herbs and a pleasant dark chocolate-like bitterness to the finish, this highly original take on the grape is just the thing for these cooler months.
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.
