Not so long ago we could buy as much Ganevat wine as we wanted. With the exception of natural wine fanatics, most people were not interested in Jura's niche products - even from a well-established winery like this founded in 1650. Who could have guessed that just a few years later, Ganevat would be so popular as to warrant allocations. Times have certainly changed. Now, leaner, less oaked, funkier wines have the surpassed the popularity of New World fruit-bombs, especially in far-flung markets in Asia. According to one of our natural wine importers, Asian consumers are taking their disposable income and buying lots more Biodynamic/organic wines in addition to high-end Bordeaux and Burgundy. Great for Jean-François Ganevat and Jura but not so great for us. Using international and indigenous varietals including those prohibited by the official AOC Jura regulations, Ganevat, a 14th generation winemaker, grows 18 varietals on 17 acres in La Combe-Rotalier (30 miles west of Switzerland). With a roster of 35-40 cuvees, Ganevat's yields are painfully small with less than 2000 cases each vintage.
