l'Octavin Cariboum 2017
Alice Bouvot and Charles are the proud proprietors of 5 hectares of vines in the Arbois region of the Jura. They started their domaine in 2005 with just 2 hectares and over the years have bought small plots and slowly increased their production. On top of their warmth, the vineyards are equally as vibrant. L’Octavin is now Demeter biodynamic certified and they work to convey this message to the fullest. Wild grasses, weeds, insects, and animals all have a place in their vines creating a true ecosystem that gives a deeper meaning to each glass of their wine. Since 2009 all L’Octavin wines are "pur jus", with no additives whatsoever.
Fresh and very drinkable wine that demonstrates complexity and drinkability at the same time.
Average age of vines is 45 years. Harvested by hand. Whole cluster, 20 day maceration in tanks. Aged in tanks. In April 2018 she combined the Carignan juice with Muscat (4%), Viognier (4%) and Molette (4%) before bottling the wine in June
