Patrick Bouju x Jason Ligas, Octave 2018
Sous le Végétal is a super exciting collab between legendary French maestro Patrick Bouju, young Greek winemaker Jason Ligas and Ochin Clovis (You may remember him from Action Bronson's hit VICE series "From Paris With Love").
Octave got its name due to the eight terraces the vines are planted on around Mount Karvounis, Greece and is a gentle direct-press of Muscat de Samos fermented in a mixture of concrete and amphora. The use of different vineyards brings a diverse mixture of soil types to the blend; limestone schist and quartz as well as the volcanic basalt. The vessels bring a fine-grained texture to the wine and the careful extraction a delicate clarity to the aromas, which really start to open out once the wine has been open for a little while.
