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. 

A thrillingly unique blanc de noirs of Poulsard. Grown by a friend of Alice’s in Arbois, the fruit is pressed straight to cuve, where it remains for a short élevage. Bottled young and brimming with energy, it is all citrus and stones and at just ten degrees of alcohol, makes for a wonderful aperitif or the perfect accompaniment to some ripe alpine cheese.
