Year in, year out, the Vin Jaune from Montbourgeau has shown exceptional finesse and elegance, and the 2012 L’Etoile Vin Jaune is no exception. The resulting wine is nutty and spicy and has some aromas of rubber and petrol, hints of herbs and smoke. The palate is full bodied at 14% alcohol, and the wine shows terrific concentration and balance.

Description

Made exclusively from the Savagnin grape, the Vin Jaune of Montbourgeau is always produced from a late harvest. After fermentation the wine is racked into foudres (30 hectoliter size) and then, after six months, racked again into smaller barrels. It is never topped off, the “voile” appears and the wine is left for at least seven years to age in barrel before being declared “Vin Jaune” and being bottled. The “Jaune” of Montbourgeau is more high-toned than the Jaunes of Puffeney and Gahier, less broad perhaps but more fine, a clear reflection of the appellation of L’Etoile.
