2003 Ganevat Savagnin
Vignes de Mon Père

A bottle of Vignes de Mon Père can easily quiet a room of seasoned wine drinkers.

The 2003 Vignes de Mon Père is a blatant challenge to preconceived notions about the vintage. There's a shocking radiant brightness and drive.

You only sense the 2003 vintage in the wine's power and concentration. The 2003 Vignes de Mon Père shows an explosive complexity of yellow plum, mushrooms, forest floor and spice.

Vin Jaune is Jura's most iconic wine and Ganevat takes the concept and turns it on its head with his Vignes de Mon Père. Where Vin Jaune is Savagnin aged oxidatively for six and a half or more years, Vignes de Mon Père is aged for around ten years, topped up in barrels. Ganevat sources his Vignes de Mon Père from his Chalasses vineyard. It's a blue marl site, which is thought to be the best soil for Savagnin. The vines were planted in 1930.

When Vignes de Mon Père is on, it's one of the most memorable and compelling wines of the Jura. And that makes it all the more painful that finding it in any quantity is next to impossible. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
