Country: Jura, France
Grape: Muscat d’Alexandrie, Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains

A beautifully textured Riesling sourced from Alsace that spent two weeks on the skins as whole bunches. Deep, rich, and well structured. Medium in body along with medium acidity. A pleasant orange wine that does not disappoint!

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. Alice now farms around five hectares of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau and Pinot Noir, with holdings in some of the region’s very best lieu-dits. Vineyard work is done by hand, with biodynamic farming used to maintain biodiversity in the vineyard.
