One of the highlights of the recent ‘Real Wine’ tasting was this superb Jura wine, from Ganevat, whose wines I have just written up on the main wineanorak site. This wine is deeply moving. Definitely a real wine.
Jean-François Ganevat Savagnin Cuvée Prestige 2004
This is a multifaceted chameleon of a wine, and I really like it. It has a remarkably lively salty, minerally, tangy nose that’s complex and sherried, but very fresh. The palate is lemony, herby, tangy and intense. So fresh and bright with some appley, nutty depth. Warm, long, rich finish. 95/100
