About The Wine
The Anne & Jean Francois Ganevat Les Corvees Trousseau is an incredible example of what happens when a rare grape is handled by an esteemed winemaker, delivering it to a wider audience of wine drinkers.
The aromas and flavours are complex and inviting: cherry, raspberry, plum and violet, and some spicy, peppery and earthy tones which give the wine immense depth and interest from the first sniff. The wine was aged for a year in a mix of foudre (very large barrels) and amphorae (large clay vessels), so there is no oak influence.
This is a delightful wine and definitely one of the best examples of Trousseau you'll find.
About Jean Francois Ganevat
Jean Francois Ganevat is one of the benchmark vignerons of the Jura region.
With the wisdom of generations of grape-growing knowledge coursing through his veins and the tutelage of his Burgundian legend mentor Jean-Marc Morey at front of mind, 'Fanfan' has taken his family Domaine to mythical status during his tenure as proprietor.
These wines are coveted the world over for their otherworldly clarity and precision. They are vivid and vibrant and made in painfully small quantities. They stand as a beacon of quality and craftsmanship in the natural wine world.
If you are lucky enough to sample one of his cuveés, it's likely to be an experience you will not soon forget.
