A 100% Chardonnay Crémant from a star Jura producer. Refined and elegant, it offers a remarkable minerality and attractive hazelnut aromas. More info

Jean-François Ganevat's Jura crémant is made solely from Chardonnay, picked quite early on to conserve the acidity. Aged in demi-muids sur latte for at least three years his slightly sulphurous wine is then bottled without any dosage. Blessed with a light hue with golden tints, it offers up an intense nose which unfurls odours of fresh hazelnuts and walnuts but also chalk and flint. It has a lovely fresh attack on the palette and ends with a slightly more acidic finish, enhanced by fine hazelnut notes.

Crémant du Jura Jean-François Ganevat (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gougères au bleu, Dinde crémée aux morilles, Plateau de fruits de mer.
