Undisputed icon of the Jura, Jean-François Ganevat has made a reputation for himself as one of the region’s top producers. Having learnt the ropes with Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, he decided to create his own domain, which he farms organically and biodynamically. Reflecting Burgundian savoir-faire, he produces single-parcel micro cuvées. In the winery, his prefers a hands off approach, allowing the wine to express itself. Domain Anne et Jean-François Ganevat is the name of the négociant business set up by Jean-François and his wife. Quality is top priority, and the couple strive to produce wines in exactly the same way as at their own domain.
About the cuvée
These are old Gamay and Poulsard vines (Poulsard is a native local variety), cultivated according to organic principles and vinified. Anne and Jean-François Ganevat have favoured a semi-carbonic maceration process in truncated cone vats, and left the native yeasts to trigger alcoholic fermentation. On tasting, the wine presents an attractive light ruby colour which exudes notes of very ripe (even crushed) black berries. The palate is generous, the tannins are supple and the peppery touches of the finish lend it persistence.
