VDF The Cross of Battles 2019
Producer: SAS Anne and Jean-François Ganevat
Grape varieties: Gamay from granite terroir and Chardonnay from Jura
La Croix des Batailles is a Jura Gamay from granite soils which has been vinified in the most natural way possible. The wine certainly owes its elegance to the low yields perceived during the harvest as well as to aging in tuns, without pumping over or punching down. Bottled without fining, filtration or addition of sulphite, it has preserved the charm and deliciousness of its fruity bouquet.
Velvety on the palate and enhanced with a beautiful freshness, it is undeniably made to accompany gastronomic dishes.
Jean-François Ganevat embodies the 14th generation of winegrowers from this family from Rotalier, south of the Jura. The man was cellar master at Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet before taking over the family business in 1998. The estate converted to Organic Culture the same year then to Biodynamic Culture in 2006. He practices plot selections: one soil, one grape variety = one vintage. The result is that the estate produces 45 vintages per year, but don't panic, everything is good, no... extraordinary. He is the reference for a whole generation of young winegrowers. This estate constitutes one of the major revelations of recent years among Jura wines and its rare production is very popular with enthusiasts.
