Anne & Jean-Francois Ganevat Côtes du Jura Les Miraculés
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 Miraculés is Chardonnay from several parcels in the Côtes du Jura aged for 3 years in 600 litre barrels and bottle without filtration, sulphur or other additions. Immensely powerful and tightly woven, it explodes in the mouth with spicy fruit and nut aromas, piercing green apple acidity and a full, luxurious weightiness.
