Montbourgeau, a century-old estate based in the Jura village of L'Etoile (so named for the prodigious amount of star-shaped fossils in the soils, formed when ancient seas dried up), produces one of our favorite crémants. Welcoming fruit (apple, pear, a hint of lemon zest) combine with chalky, slightly saline minerality for a complex, but easy-drinking bottle of bubbly. A fine beverage to start off the evening but interesting and weighty enough to drink with a meal, start to finish.

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.

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

Nicole Deriaux produces a small amount of sparkling wine from her Chardonnay plantings. The young vines are used to produce the Crémant. The wine undergoes both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations and then spends at least eighteen months on the lies as it passes through the second fermentation in bottle (a la Champagne). Vinified entirely dry and left strictly Brut at the time of disgorgment.
