Grape: Muscat d’Alexandrie and Muscat à Petits Grains
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming and Natural Wine
Wine making: Grapes are hand harvested from the vineyards of Vincent Lafage in the Pyrenees. The grapes fermented as whole bunches for fifteen days, before being pressed off to cuve for nine months of élevage.
A wine of intense perfume and great freshness, with lots of citrus balancing out the riot of flowers on display.
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.
