Anne & Jean-Francois Ganevat, La Croix Des Batailles 2019
This is a Negociant Gamay wine from the legend and icon that is Jean-Francois Ganevat, whose wines are so hard to find they now sell for hundreds of pounds in auction houses or some of the best Michelin starred restaurants in the world. This ones powerful yet precise with deep earthy cherry vibes.
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.
