The physique of a French rock singer of the 90s, a spoken frankness, a natural sweetness, Jean-François Ganevat is one of the boss of Jura’s natural wine. Son of a winegrower, he first went to study in Burgundy at the Jean-Marc Morey estate (Chassagne-Montrachet) where he learned the rigor and secrets of barrel aging. In 1998 he returned to his native land and took over the family estate. He quickly converts the vineyard into organic and then biodynamic, which according to him allows to erase the vintage effect by highlighting the terroir. A perpetual quest since he vinifies practically only plot vintages from limestone, schist or marly soils. Meticulous, rigorous, passionate, he inherits the nickname “The alchemist”.
Since 2006, he has totally banned sulphites and confides that he takes much less pleasure in drinking his wines preceding this vintage.
Pure, fine, elegant, luminous, the whole world is snapping up its wines!
