Made from the rare Molette grape picked in the vineyards of Domaine Trichon in Bugey.
About the producer: 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.
It impresses with delicate scents of mandarin and white flowers and a clean, salty finish. A beautiful apéritif.
