Wine Maker: Domaine de l'Octavin
Region: Jura, France
Taste note: Alice’s iconic Chardonnay comes from a parcel of forty year old vines planted over Jurassic marls in La Mailloche. Pressed directly, it spent eighteen months ageing in old barrels. Showing the site’s pedigree, every little detail is in place and this is exactly the kind of lean, crystalline Chardonnay that made us fall in love with the Jura in the first place. With impeccable balance and length, this might just be the best Pamina yet.
