Pre-Sale Jean-Francois Ganevat Grusse en Billat Chardonnay 2019

Pre-Sale Jean-Francois Ganevat Grusse en Billat Chardonnay 2019

Regular price $310

2016 // 750ml // ABV 13.9%

One of the benchmark chardonnays from Ganevat and one that ages for decades. Incredibly complex, all intensity of stone fruits and green apple, saline characters, light sherry notes and nutty-savouriness. Superb wine. 

Based in the village of Rotalier in Jura’s south, ‘Fanfan’ Ganevat is one of Jura’s most charismatic winemakers. Fanfan comes from a long line of vignerons that dates back to the mid 17th century, though fascinatingly the family had supplemented grape growing with dairy endeavours until the mid-1970s.

Fanfan cut his teeth in winemaking with his father, though also learned from Burgundian master Domaine Jean-Marc Morey before returning to the generational family property. He has judiciously converted viticulture to biodynamics, and has fine-tuned winemaking with a gentle hand, focussing on ouille (topping up) techniques and singling out unique plots and vineyards to build the domaine’s stellar reputation.
