The Domaine de Montbourgeau L'Etoile Pied de Mont-Augy 2020 showcases the exceptional quality of Chardonnay from Jura's most venerable vines, planted in 1920. Under the guidance of Nicole Deriaux and her sons, César and Baptiste, this wine exemplifies the perfect marriage of tradition and innovation.

  • Soil Type: The highly calcareous soils of L'Étoile impart a striking minerality to the wine, lending it an elegant, finessed character that is both intense and refined.

  • Viticulture: The ancient Chardonnay plot, with its deep-rooted vines, yields a wine that balances old-vine concentration with the appellation's signature acidity, creating a harmonious interplay of flavors and textures.

  • Winemaking: After spending its first year in large foudres, a portion of the wine is transferred to stainless steel for a few months, resulting in a non-oxidative style that emphasizes the Chardonnay's vibrant acidity and saline minerality. This approach showcases the domaine's commitment to both preserving classic styles and exploring new expressions of their terroir.

  • Tasting Notes: The wine captivates with its balance of limestone minerality and lush yellow fruit, presenting a palate where elegance and intensity coexist seamlessly. Its non-oxidative élevage enhances its freshness, making it a standout example of L'Étoile Chardonnay.

  • Pairing: Ideal with sophisticated seafood dishes, creamy risottos, or poultry, this Chardonnay enhances the flavors of the cuisine while maintaining its own character and complexity.

Located in eastern France, the Jura wine region has emerged as a notable spot for natural winemaking, drawing attention for its minimal intervention practices. Despite its cooler climate, Jura is currently "hot" in the wine world, particularly for those valuing artisanal approaches. It's distinguished by unique soils like limestone and marl, enriching its wines with distinct minerality. The region champions native grapes such as Savagnin, Trousseau, Poulsard, and Chardonnay, which thrive here. Small-scale production is key, ensuring each bottle reflects Jura's unique terroir and winemaking philosophy, blending tradition with innovation.


Chardonnay, one of the world's most versatile and beloved white grape varieties, showcases a remarkable spectrum of styles, from the lean, mineral-driven expressions of Chablis in France to the rich, buttery, and oak-aged versions from California's Napa Valley. Its adaptability extends to cooler climates such as Burgundy, where it achieves elegance and complexity, and to regions like Australia's Yarra Valley, known for producing vibrant and fruit-forward renditions. This grape's ability to reflect its terroir, coupled with winemaking techniques, results in a wide array of profiles, including unoaked, crisp varieties with apple and citrus notes, to full-bodied wines with tropical fruit flavors and creamy textures.
