Domaine de Montbourgeau was founded a century ago, in the small Jura town of L'Etoile — the star — thus named because of the prodigious amount of star-shaped fossils in the soils, formed when ancient seas dried up.

Over the decades, they've become known for their white wines; like the best in the region, they are complex, saline, and (mostly) oxidative, with waxy yellow fruit and tons of minerality. They mostly grow Chardonnay, with a bit of Savagnin thrown in, as well as a smattering of red grapes.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 91
"The Jamet magic is on full display here, with lacy, fresh aromas of violets, cherry and blueberries marking the nose of the 2020 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah. Just medium-bodied, it nevertheless delivers immensely satisfying notes of black olives and red raspberries, framed by ineffably silky tannins. Not super long or powerful, it offers a genuine sense of the Jamet house style in a delicious, early-drinking wine." -Robert Parker

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Montbourgeau produces a small amount of pure Savagnin. The grapes are sourced from several sites all underlain by marne (grey/blue). After fermentation, the Savagnin is racked into a mix of different-sized barrels where it rests for four years or so without further racking and without being topped off.
