Jura : Natural Wines very popular

For no sulphite added wine lovers all over the world, natural wine from Jura has become without a doubt one of the most prized (we even saw a natural wine shopr in Tokyo that only offered wine from the region). For a few years, prices have been increasing at a crazy speed. With each new vintage, bottles of JF Ganevat, Domaine Labet, etc. are snapped up. We understand why, it must be said that it is often very very good… but also that the Jura corresponds perfectly to the tastes of the new generation of natural wine drinkers. Fine, delicate, elegant, lively and mineral, we are far from the standards of the exuberant, tannic and powerful wine which was generally present on the table of our parents.
