Anne & Jean-Francois Ganevat, Kopines 2017
This is an amazing yet delicious blend of Jura Chardonnay and Burgundy Aligoté. Vinified in the proper natural way. Grapes spend a year in a barrel with the end result being a balanced, buttery wine with delicate notes of citrus fruit and white flowers.
Jean-Francois Ganevat is an iconic winemaker, heralded not just as one of the best vignerons in Jura but in the natural wine world full stop. His family have deep roots in Jura, and Jean-Francois began by working alongside his father in the 1970s. Formal training at wine school followed and thereafter a stint in Burgundy with Domaine Marc Morey, before Jean-Francois returned to take over the family business in 1998 where his legendary reputation has grown stronger with each passing year.
