Grape: Vermentino and Carignan from Claude Ughetto in the Vaucluse.
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming and Natural Wine
Type: dark Rose / Light red
Wine making: The Carignan was pressed directly, with the Vermentino added to the juice as whole bunches to gently infuse for three weeks before being pressed to cuve until the following spring.
A particularly pale, pretty shade of sunset, this rosé-of-sorts is perfumed with sunkissed strawberry, earth and spice, with a pleasant bitterness that brings refreshment and intrigue.
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.
