Cuvée presentation

This cuvée is produced from a varietal native to the Jura region: Melon-Queue-Rouge. A descendent of the Chardonnay family, its low yields have led to it gradually falling out of favour. Domaine Ganevat is trying to revitalise the variety which was once preferred to Chardonnay, deemed to be more well-rounded and pleasant than its Burgundian cousin. A unique wine, to be discovered without delay.
