2019 l'Octavin Potion Magique14383
WINEMAKER: Alice Bouvot
REGION: Jura, FR
VARIETY: Poulsard, Chardonnay, Savagnin
"The wine is a blend of Poulsard, Chardonnay and Savagnin all harvested from Alice’s vines in the renowned La Mailloche vineyard on the outskirts of Arbois. While she occasionally makes a blends of grapes from different places for a négoce wine she only ever blends estate wines if they are from the same vineyard. From a vintage that was devastated by frost, the fruit that survived was of excellent quality. The grapes had 2 months of maceration (whole clusters) before pressing. It was bottled in June 2020 . It is a very light reddish colour, almost looking like a macerated white wine." - Living Wines
