2007 Domaine Ganevat Chardonnay Grusse en Billat, Cotes du Jura, France

2007 Domaine Ganevat Chardonnay Grusse en BillatBack Label of Grusse en Billat 2007
Bright lemon yellow core. Pronounced lemon zest aromas; flinty, toasted almonds and a touch of vanilla on the nose. Plenty of minerality (think wet stones and sea shells), fresh lemons and pith, white pepper, and chalk on the palate. Med+ to hi acidity. Med+ finish. Quite an elegant (seems to be a firm stylistic approach of Ganevat, evident from the Poulsard I had recently) Chardonnay if you like clean, slightly more precise flavors, and a subtle use of oak. Oh, and to top it all off – it was biodynamically grown! đŸ™‚
