Anne et Jean-Francois Ganevat, 'Le Jaja du Ben', 2017,Jura

About this wine

50% to 60% Gamay from Beaujolais, 40% to 50% Indigenous Jura Varieties. Whole grape fermentation à l’ancienne and aged 9 months in conicalwood tanks. If you ask why Gamay? In Jura? The reason is because after consecutive vintages of losing large portions of his harvest, Jean-François was forced to innovate to make more wine. In partnership with his sister Anne, he went to friends in Alsace, Beaujolais, and Savoie to source more fruit. Anne and Jean-François even went so far as to purchase vines in the Beaujolais. Each Vin de France cuvée is a blend of estate fruit from the Jura and purchased (or estate) fruit from another region, thus allowing Jean-François to apply his savoir-faire in winemaking with indigenous grape varieties from the Jura to create a new and unique line of wines. All of the vineyards contributing to this project are farmed organically.
