Domaine de l'Octavin Elle Aime
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Despite having trained in Bordeaux and Burgundy, Alice Bouvot knew that when it came to start her own domaine, the Jura would be the place. In 2004 she started from scratch, buying a small cellar in the village of Arbois where she makes electrifying wines from negotiant fruit as well as a couple of hectares of vines in the Jura itself.
Elle Aime is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted in the limestone and marl of the famed ‘En Arces’ vineyard in Arbois. An enticing red fruit nose with touches of earth and game leading to an exceptionally pure and fresh palate accentuated by a very gentle spritz.
