This gem of a Jura Chardonnay is supple and pleasantly creamy. Pair with delicately-flavoured foods. More info
Les Gryphées is made purely with Chardonnay cultivated on a terroir of gravel and red marl in the Jura. True to his natural winemaking philosophy, Jean-François Ganevat uses indigenous yeasts and matures the wine on its lees for two years. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. In the glass, the bouquet releases notes of apple, citrus fruits and white flowers. These fresh qualities continue onto the palate which is enhanced by a supple and pleasantly creamy texture.
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.
