Domaine Rolet - l’Etoile Chardonnay - 2017
Arbois, Jura, France
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. Ripe yellow apple, lemon, anjou pear rule the creamy core, with a gently buzzy underlay of limestone keeping things buoyant and long on the palate. The saline finish lingers long after the wine is done. Drinking well now, ideally with poultry.
