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.

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.
