Anne & Jean-Francois Ganevat VdT Blanc 'l'Apero' 2016
Brother-sister duo Anne & Jean-Francois Ganevat source fruit from Alsace, Beaujolais, and Savoie, crafting a unique line of VdF wines (blended with their Jura estate fruit) of character and pizzazz. All fruit sourced is organic; fruit for ‘L’Apero’ undergoes a short maceration and ages 12 months in foudre, creating an aromatic, funky fizz, perfect for its namesake title (apero!) Pair with white meat, sushi, and dishes with heat.
The reference point for greatness; the fount of most wine-specific vocabulary; and the nation most identified with viticulture and winemaking expertise. As awesome as Italy but a little snootier.
