A green and molded landscape with small hills nestled between Burgundy and Switzerland. Flavored by the vapors of the Comté, the great cheese of world fame. Cool climate, vineyards planted on slopes at different heights. Countless varieties of grapes where Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard, Trousseau, Gamay stand out... Fafan Ganevat, as his close friends call him, is a true alchemist who drives you crazy with more than forty cuvées that he makes every year. A vigneron whose religion is biodynamics and natural wines. A tiny Domaine in the village of La Combe de Rotailer where he manages approximately eight hectares. Trained in Chassagne Montrachet with Jean Marc Morey, he took over the family property in 1998, later joined by his sister Anne. He is a perfectionist and for what most would be maddening, he makes it everyday. He barely uses sulfur and there is always a fear that the wines will spoil during transport, but he completely avoids this by aging on the lees for long periods of time, even up to 11 years. His wines lack the traditional Jura oxidation and he prefers the Burgundian style of lightness and elegance. His wines are from another world.
Ganevat De Toute Beaute Red 2021
A cuvée where “everything” (De Toute) is included: Gamay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petit Béclan, Gros Béclan, Geusche, Argant, Peurion, Portugais Bleu, Isabelle, Enfariné. A lot of native varieties of the Jura that we don't know how they can be recognized, because they are practically unique. Harvesting and manual destemming, joint vinification of the grapes by maceration for a few days, spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and maturation in truncated cone-shaped tanks for 9 months. It is not clarified or filtered, nor is sulfur added before bottling. Something to which Fafan Ganevat has accustomed us.
