Domaine de Montbourgeau Cuvee Spéciale 2012

One of those Jura producers that seems to get overlooked for the Instagrammable ones, and by virtue of that, leaves us, the righteous, opportunity to access the wines! Hurrah! I often visit my friend Phillipe who runs Essencia in Poligny, Jura, one of the world’s great cheese shops, and a generational cheese guy, and he always has Montbourgeau on hand. In the know. Meanwhile, sustainable farming is the ticket here, as is 20 to 90 year old vines. It is chardonnay that matures for four years, on lees, under a yeast flor. And so fresh out of these bottles. Amazing.
