2016 Anne & Jean-François Ganevat ‘La Fortbeau’ Chardonnay
A project Jean-François has launched with his sister, Anne in response to a run of recently poorly-yielding vintages in the Jura. The label 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.
Made from Chardonnay fruit the siblings sourced from old vines planted on Marl, then given the usual Ganevat treatment of 30 months aged on lees, the results are as delicious as you would imagine. Racy and powerful with character in spades.
