Appellation: AOC L'Etoile (Jura region)

 

Grapes: Chardonnay

 

Farming: Organic (not certified)

 

Aromatics: Hazelnuts, green apple and white fruits with fresh oxidative characters.

 

Palate: Generously textured yet balanced and fresh. A very approachable and vibrant Jura Chardonnay, plenty of complexity for this entry level cuvee from the Domaine. Packed with minerality, intensity of flavour and saline finish.

 

About the wine: A Jura Chardonnay beautifully aged in barrel with oxidative characters. Ageing in 230 litre oak barrels, as well as 600 litre demi muid for 3 years. Never topped off, includes time under flor.

 

When to drink: Now or in the next 10 years after vintage.

 

Service: Serving temperature 10 degrees Celsius, decant for few minutes if you can or simply use large Burgundy glass.

 

Food match: Comté! Otherwise fish quenelle, roasted white fish, chicken curry or roasted lobster.
