Hip Hip J… Chardonnay, Domaine de l'Octavin 2020
Vineyard work is done by hand and is both fanatical and fantastic, with biodynamic farming used to great effect in retaining a real biodiversity in the vineyard. These are some of the most beautiful parcels we have seen. After a number of lean vintages, Alice had to look further afield to make ends meet and now harvests grapes at trusted friend’s properties all over France, making an equally exciting range of negotiant wines.
Alice’s take on Chardonnay from a friend in Arbois. The grapes were pressed directly to cuve and the wine was bottled in the spring after a short élevage. Reflecting the vintage, this is already incredibly open and expressive, plush with stone fruits and carrying a clean, mineral finish. It is Jura Chardonnay at its most immediate and invigorating.
