    Given the performance of his relatively young vines in this largely reddish Marnes marl site, it's small wonder that Ganevat's 2010 Cotes du Jura Chardonnay Les Grands Teppes Vieilles Vignes ' from vines some of which were planted in 1919 on ' delivers a profoundly impressive performance. Buddleia, honeysuckle, and heliotrope waft with headily sweet allure, backed by apricot and lime that then inform an expansive, richly textured palate which doesn't betray its 14.5% alcohol in any heat or roughness. Deep nuttiness wells up as this opens, and, along with mouthwateringly maritime mineral notes, perfectly complements its succulence of fruit and floral wreath, while a vibrant current of citricity serves for a finish that tingles and invigorates as it grips. It was fascinating to experience different vine selections ' featuring among other things, as Ganevat emphasizes, different berry-size ' as reflected in the different lots that were to inform this future bottling and whose composite character I have attempted to capture in my tasting note. I could scarcely tear myself away from the fascination and seduction of the empty glass between samples! I suspect the finished product will merit at least a decade of attention. (As a point of reference, the 2009 Grands Teppes carried a remarkably modest suggested retail price of $55.00.)
