WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING

One of the great classics of the Jura worked by the excellent Domaine Rolet which will delight your guests with unparalleled purity and freshness.

This Chardonnay is grown on the hills near Lons Le Saunier, with distinguished soils of grey blue marls and star shaped fossils called pentacrine, after which this small appellation was named. L'Étoile is fermented in barrique, where it ages for a year before bottling. Youthful, forward and present now, in the purest style of the Etoile Appellation. With its fruity and toasted notes on the nose, it is a wine that gives off a freshness on the palate, all in control, absolutely remarkable. There's an earthy minerality that runs through this, holding it very memorable.
