Domaine de l'Octavin Hip Hip J 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.
The Hip Hip J is made from Chardonnay grown in Arbois. An exemplar of Jura Chardonnay with electrifying acidity carrying intense lemon and lime aromas with some riper stone fruit and savoury pastry notes lingering beneath.
