Savagnin de Voile Ganevat 2017, Iconic Biodynamic producer in the Jura, this signature wine is a rarity now, grab it while you can. This Savagnin is aged under flor for 4 years in old oak barrels and undergoes slow oxidation during this time although not as much as for a Vin Jaune. In the Jura, many of the wines go through a traditional, intentional oxidation; however Jean-François Ganevat aims to lend a greater lightness and elegance to wines of this style than is typical. The result here is somewhat otherworldly, a wine of unusual depth and intensity, still with a racy acidity and freshness. It is not for those unused to the oxidative style and we would highly recommend the right food when drinking, something classic from the region and likely involving cheese. If you are a fan, then this rare fine wine will not disappoint. We recommend serving not too chilled and decanting well and tackle the bottle between 4 people.
