Enjoy the perfect balance of richness and vivacity in this Chardonnay made from (very) old vines. More info
This Chardonnay comes from one-hundred-year old vines grown on red marly soil. Its vinification in barriques and its 22-month élevage on lees in demi-muids gives it a round and rather creamy character, counterbalanced by fine tension. It is fruity on the nose (ripe stone fruit, citrus fruit) and spicy. Its persistence means it pairs beautifully with a mature Comté or roast meat with fruit.
Former head winemaker of Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, Jean-François Gavenat has become one of the most talented winemakers in the Jura since he took over his family domain in 1998. His vineyard spans 13 hectares and includes many different grape varieties. Gavenat has a natural and biodynamic approach (without certification) and produces some single vineyard wines (the domain boasts 50 different cuvées). The vines are relatively old and meticulously cared for. The yields are low and the vinifcations gentle. Some of the reds are matured in amphorae are of a very high quality ; Gavenat has recently got involved in negociant activity. This domain has played an important part in increasing the popularity of wines from the Jura. Production is small and the wines are prized by wine lovers all over.
