Domaine de Montbourgeau Cuvée Spéciale L'Etoile Chardonnay Blend 2011 (1500ml)

$75.99

L'Etoile is located in the southwestern corner of the Jura and most likely gets its name from the ubiquitous presence of star-shaped fossils in the soils. The "Cuvee Speciale" from Montbourgeau is 100% Chardonnay and aged in barrel for 4 to 5 years. The long elevage engenders this wine with earthy, nutty aromatics and a honeyed, rich yet almost austere palate.

Great wine. I haven't had many of these oxidized whites but this one is quite unique and intriguing. Caramel, toast, almond, rich, but w good acidity, grilled peach, roasted lemon.

I want to love it but can't. Gave it a full week and checked in on it each day... just too sharply sherry'd and fucked up.

Good juice if you like racy acidity in your Chard. Interesting aromatics, almost smokey. Not an oxidized style.
