Domaine de Montbourgeau, "l'Etoile" Jura 2016$33.00
Grape: Chardonnay, Savignin
Clean with interesting sherry notes on the nose and palate. Made in a slightly oxidative style, this delicious Jura blend showcases notes of nutty caramel and slight spice.
|L’Etoile En Banode: The finesse of the regular cuvée of L’Etoile plays counterpoint to this cuvée, “En Banode” which is a field blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin from a single vineyard source. Not produced every vintage, the “En Banode” is more full-bodied and rustic than the regular L’Etoile bottling and it reflects the special soil characteristics (the grey and blue marne) that are best for planting the finicky Savagnin grape. The “En Banode” bottling occurs after 30 to 36 months of elevage.|
