Domaine Jean-François Ganevat is located in La Combe de Rotalier in Jura, France. The estate has been in the family since 1650 and is currently managed by Jean-François Ganevat, who trained and worked at Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet until 1998, before returning to his family estate. Ganevat’s production is small, but is made up of about 40 different cuvées aimed at highlighting the terroir, varietal or winemaking style. The 13-hectare estate has been certified biodynamic since 2014. Jean-François Ganevat uses traditional, customized winemaking techniques: destemming is done manually, no new wood is used, white wines are aged on the lees for a minimum of two years, and since 2006 he has completely eradicated the use of sulfur.
The estate also buys in grapes from Alsace, Savoy and Beaujolais to produce cuvées under the Vin de France appellation. These cuvées are blended from purchased and estate grapes, allowing Jean-François Ganevat and his wife Anne to use all the native grape varieties to develop unique, declassified wines.
This cuvée is made from old Chardonnay vines in the Mâconnais area. It is lees aged in barrels for two years. The nose offers aromas of ripe fruit (apple, pear), as well as notes of praline, and on the palate the attack is frank and lively. The body is refined and elegant, while being mouthwatering. The finish, together mineral and citrusy notes, lingers.
