Re: TN: 2011 Jean-François Ganevat Côtes du Jura Les Chalasses Vieilles Vignes

Your post inspired me to open a 2011 Ganevat Les Chalasses Marnes Bleues Savignin. It was really super. Strong lemon oil and some umami notes with excellent acidity. I really like Ganevat wines and own a couple of cases but rarely remember or find the time to pop one. Very glad I did. Stay healthy e...
