Origin: Jura, France
Grapes: Poulsard

Poulsard from a 5 hectarce vineyard with gray and white marl soils. The vines are 50 years old and farmed biodynamically. Grapes are destemmed and macerated for a month during the ferment with wild yeasts. No fining, filtering or additions of sulfur.

After training in Bordeaux and Burgundy, Alice Bouvot travelled the world and then finally settled in her native Jura. Her practices are strictly biodynamic and a meticulous attitude to pruning and vine health helps to maintain the incredible biodiversity of each plot. Her winemaking style is very much dynamic and there is no recipe for any one cuvée each year. She talks emphatically about the importance of "acidity and coolness" in her wines and how wines from the Jura are fortunate to have these sorts of inherent characters, especially Poulsard. Vinification is done in the most natural way possible, as she says, vinifying in any other way is to "alter the identity of the wine".
