2016 Anne & Jean-François Ganevat 'La Gravière’ Chardonnay
A project Jean-Francois has launched with his sister, Anne in response to a run of recent poorly-yielding vintages in the Jura. The 2016 Anne & Jean-François Ganevat 'La Gravière’ Chardonnay is an excuse for the duo to turn the experimental dial up to eleven, and to shift some of the focus beyond the boundaries of the Jura.
The siblings source the Chardonnay fruit for this bottling from a 60-year-old vineyard planted on grey marl. La Gravière toes a wonderful line between rich texture and electrifying acidity. Yellow fruited and pithy with tension bursting out, this is easily on par with Jean-François’s estate wines.
