Domaine de l'Octavin Hip Hip J... Savagnin
Despite having trained in Bordeaux and Burgundy, Alice Bouvot knew that when it came to starting 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 negociant fruit as well as a couple of hectares of vines in Jura itself.
The Hip Hip J... is made from Savagnin grown in Arbois and macerated as whole bunches for two months, followed by a year of rest in cuve. A gorgeous, deep shade of amber in the glass, Alice plays with the variety’s more aromatic side here, revealing exotic fruits, zest and spice.
