Domaine Rolet L'etoile Chardonnay Jura 2018
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. Pouring a deeper lemon hue, this creamy chardy is sharpened with a laser beam of lemony acidity, streaming buzzy mineral, green apple, lanolin, subtle toast, and rock salts down a streamlined palate, finishing with a saline wash. This has depth, and freshness, making for a welcome drink now.
