Notes from Kermit Lynch:

The green, rolling landscape of the Jura is a sight to behold and, at the heart of it all, in the charming hamlet of La Combe de Rotalier, Jean-François Ganevat is making wine with the inspired magic of an alchemist.  He comes from a long line of winegrowers, dating as far back as 1650. After working both for his father and for the prestigious Domaine Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, Jean-François returned to the Jura in 1998 to take over the family domaine. Today, he is joined by his sister, Anne.

For such a fervent perfectionist and insatiable lover of details as Jean-François, the decision to have the domaine certified as biodynamic was a natural choice. His methodology goes far beyond the details of the average vigneron. In the Jura, many of the wines go through a traditional, intentional oxidation; however Jean-François aims to lend a greater lightness and elegance to wines of this style than are typical. He gravitates toward the Burgundian style, using ouillage to top off barrels. Jean-François Ganevat is a master of his craft, one of the true magicians of the eclectic.
