Jean-François Ganevat

Jean-François Ganevat represents the 14th generation of vignerons of his family in Rotalier, in the south of Jura. After years working as the cellar master of Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, he took over his family’s estate in 1998. Ganevat converted the estate to organic viticulture the very same year, and then to biodynamic viticulture in 2006. Jean-François practices single-parcel selection, that is to say, one soil type, one grape variety = one cuvée. As a result, the estate produces 45 different cuvées every year – and don’t worry, it’s all good, or rather... extraordinary. He is THE master of natural wine vinification, the benchmark for an entire generation of young vignerons. The estate is only 8.5 hectares and the yields are low. Fortunately, Jean François and his sister Anne also set up a wine trading company. They buy grapes grown in Morgon, cultivated by vigneron friends who respect their vision of wine. Beautiful Gamay, vinified with foot treading, long carbonic maceration in truncated vats, indigenous yeasts and no sulphur added...

Another otherworldly cuvée by Fanfan. A sweet passerillé wine, with a nose of apricot, fig, and quince. The palate is balanced, dense, and syrupy, with beautiful freshness, length, and notes of spice. A cuvée that will leave you, as the French say, Sul Q (sur le cul) – dumbfounded and “on your bottom”!

The expression of great terroir, but above all, the fruit of a meeting between perfect Savagnin and its preferred soil. An ultra complex nose, with notes of candied lemon, flowers, Mirabelle plum and coriander seeds... Palate: a lot of freshness, minerality, persistence and opulence... A micro cuvée that’s rich, powerful and complex, and must be decanted 2/3 hours in advance. An Unidentified Viticultural Object, by Fanfan... One of the estate’s greatest wines!

A lively, clean, precise wine, with notes of spices and curry. On the palate: full-bodied, rich, intense and complex, with flavours of walnut, cinnamon and gingerbread. A classic example of the style, with notes of citrus fruits to boot – simply splendid!

A fine introduction to the great terroirs of Fanfan (as Jean-François’ friends call him). An ultra complex nose, with notes of candied lemon, honey, pineapple, mango... Palate: a wine of great purity, this is a mineralesque juice, with enormous volume, a lot of freshness, iodised notes and a lingering finish.
