Domaine de l"Octavin Mus'Cat


Country: France

Region: Jura

Grapes: Muscat

Vintage: 2018

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 and a couple of hectares of vines in the hills surrounding. 

An equal blend of Muscat d’Alexandrie and Muscat à Petits Grains from vines in the Pyrénées. The grapes as 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.
