2017 Domaine Ganevat Les Survivants Chardonnay
Since returning to the Jura 1999 after a successful career as a winemaker in Burgundy, Jean-François Ganevat has driven the family domaine to the forefront of the Jura wine scene and is currently delivering some of the most prized and sought after bottles the region has to offer.
Catastrophic spring frosts in 2017 led to a decimated crop of Chardonnay for Jean-François Ganevat. Undeterred, he ploughed ahead and was able to rescue enough fruit from across the parcels he owns to make this single cuvée that’s still as balanced and as fine as in so-called ‘better’ vintages. Proof positive that good winemakers will make great wine regardless of what the weather throws at them.
