Château de l’Etoile owes its name to the star-shaped fossils that lie just beneath the ground surface. It is located in a small village of the High Jura region which has been inhabited since Antiquity. The property was bought by Auguste Vendelle in 1883, and it has stayed within the family ever since. Today, Alexandre oversees the wine production and promotes sustainable practices throughout his vineyards, which are located on the slopes of Mont Muz. Oxidative aging for a little over a year in large oak barrels gives this regionally traditional version of chardonnay a slightly nutty character to go along with subtle alpine floral notes and a hint of orange on the palate. Try it with long-aged mountain cheese (fondue!) or roasted chicken.
