An old mineral Chardonnay that wonderfully balances roundness and tension; and definitely assumes the quality of the work of this Jura icon. More info

La Gravière is the result of the natural vinification of old Chardonnay grown on a soil of grey marl. Aged for 30 months on its lees, it has been bottled without sulphur, with no filtration nor fining. On tasting, it charms us with its mineral profile coated with notes of white fruits and citrus. The palate nicely balances roundness and tension and lingers with beautiful bitters.

Côtes du Jura La Gravière Anne et Jean-François Ganevat serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Blanquette de saumon, Cailles grillées, Papillotes de saumon.
