Domaine Jean-François Ganevat is located at La Combe de Rotalier in Jura, France. The estate has been a family property since 1650 and is currently run by Jean-François Ganevat, who trained and worked until 1998 at Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, before returning to his family estate. Ganevat’s production is small, but made up of around 40 different cuvéesaimed at highlighting the terroir, the grape variety or the style of winemaking.

The 13-hectare estate has been biodynamic certified since 2014. Jean-François Ganevat uses ancient and individualised vinification techniques: destemming is done by hand, no new oak is used, the white wines are aged on lees for a minimum of two years and, since 2006, he has completely eradicated the use of sulfur.

The estate also sources grapes from Alsace, Savoy and Beaujolais for the production of cuvées under the Vin de France appellation. These cuvées, blended with the grapes purchased and those from the estate, allow Jean-François Ganevat and his sister Anne to use all the indigenous grape varieties and to develop unique and declassified wines.

Tasting Notes

Vin de Paille is a sweet wine made from passerillage (a technique that consists of leaving the grapes off the vines so that they dry under the combined action of the sun and the wind. This dehydrates the berries and, therefore, concentrates the sugars). All Jura grape varieties are authorised except Pinot Noir. The final wine must be over 14% alcohol and contains between 70 and 120 g/L of residual sugar. It is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months and is only released at least of 3 years after the vintage.
