Cuvée Marguerite, Ganevat

Cuvée Marguerite, Ganevat - 2013

Item # 28751 1.5L

A refined, elegant offering from one of Jura's most idiosyncratic producers. Serve with very funky cheese or as an interesting partner to roast chicken breast. Ganevat favors using large vats and humid cellars for his oxidative wines. This traditional approach is directly opposite to the rest of the Jura where small barrels and dry cellars are the norm. He feels that he can obtain much more refined, elegant wines this way.

It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...

Jura

A petite and relatively obscure wine region in eastern France, between Burgundy and the Swiss border. Its geographical isolation has helped it to remain a rare bastion of traditional winemaking techniques, and today it produces some of the most distinctive wines in the world. Reds from the Jura are often light-bodied, earthy, berried, and reminiscent of the village wines of Burgundy (though here they are made of local grapes like Poulsard and Trousseau).
