Domaine de l'Octavin P'Tit Poussot
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.
P'Tit Poussot is Chardonnay from young vines planted in limestone in Alice’s ‘Poussot’ vineyard in Arbois, pressed directly and aged in cuve until the following spring. As always this is an immediate, invigorating take on Jurassic Chardonnay, distilling it down to its most essential elements of ripe citrus, hazy minerals and a clean, salty finish.
