Domaine Ganevat Côtes du Jura Les Chamois du Paradis
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.
Les Chamois du Paradis is Chardonnay from a small 60 year old plot in the same vineyard as Grandes Teppes. Aged for 2 years in 600 litre barrels it's saline and ripe with waves of preserved lemon, apple, souk spice and chalk. Classic Ganevat power on the palate with plenty of tangy acidity on the long, immense palate.
