L’Octavin Ganache 2020










Grenache, Gamay

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.

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. 

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 wine.

An utterly classic blend of Grenache and Gamay from Jura and Savoie – thyme sprigs, ground pepper, ripe cherry, red apple skin and vanilla. 

Pairs well with mature and hard cheese, beef bourguignon, Shepherd’s pie and Basque lasagne.

Serving tip — Serve slightly chilled
