Domaine Gavenat, Jean-Francois Gavenat, Rotalier

100% Chardonnay from old vines planted on a terroir of Lias-period marls, harvested by hand. Vinification is done naturally: direct pressing, transfer into demi-muid barrels that have seen several wines for fermentation and a maturation of 24 months. Zero added sulphur, and neither filtered nor fined. A wine that goes for £££'s in some of the world's finest restaurants, yours for a fraction.

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.

80% Gamay obtained from the Ganevats’s own 1.5 Hectares of organic vineyards in Morgon, Brouilly and Fleurie, along with a rare Jura variety Enfariné that grows in their Jura vineyards, all vinified by them in Jura.

Delicious, very drinkable and explosive; mouthwatering aromas followed by a juicy, luscious sip that envelopes the entire palate with memories of dark fruit and over-ripe sour cherry. A small quantity is available (the winery received many hundred-folds of orders than the produced amount), we recommend opening 20 minutes before drinking. Can be served lightly chilled.

Grape: 80% Gamay / 20% Enfariné (or Gouais noir)
