l'Octavin - NV Betty Bulles
Alice Bouvot's heaven-high quality small vintages have become insanely sought-after; for good reason. She vinifies grapes she grows in her 5ha of certified biodynamic vineyards in Arbois, or purchases from some of the very best organic and biodynamic producers around France, picking the fruit herself and transporting it back to her cellar. The wines are 'pur jus', with no additives whatsoever – they're 100% grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts. No sulphur is ever added, nor are the wines filtered or fined. Wildly pure stuff.
Betty Bulles is a lively pet nat made with grapes sourced from other organic producers due to the scarcity of Alice’s grapes in 2018. It's Molette from Bugey, Muscat from Roussillon and Viognier from Beaujolais – not your normal assembly of grapes for a pet nat. This is a thrilling wine with incredible depth of flavour, insane purity of expression and harmonic balance of minerality, fruits and acid. A special bot!
