Domaine de Montbourgeau Cuvée Spéciale L'Etoile Savagnin 2009

9.37 ratings on Delectable
$34.99

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.

Curried cashews and green apple; grape variety gives way to place and winemaking, as this easily recalls the Savagnin.

Toasted hazelnuts, lemon meringue. A wine to ponder as you imbibe.

Lucky to taste this twice in a month. Racy acidity for 09, balanced with notes of celery, leather and spice. One of my favorite sans soufre wines.

Terrific. I like it even more than the regular bottling which is savagnin and chardonnay. It seems fresher - although there is still that telltale oxidative note, it's bright and chalky, even lemony out of the gate before some of the deeper tones come out.

Pristine. Pretty perfect. Salinity of Savagnin, with some weight and body from Chardonnay
