Overview tasting of the recently bottled wines of Ganevat. Whites 2013 & reds 2014. All of them showed a lot character already. My favorite today was the Julien en Billat Pinot Noir. Partly franc de pied pinot planted in 1990 and partly vieilles vignes pinot on 'schist' soil with calcarious clay on top. So alive this one! Roses, chalk, great expression and light as a feather. Wow. This is the way I want my Pinot.
