Domaine de Montbourgeau, Cremant du Jura, NV


Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)

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. From Chardonnay grown on a mix of clay and limestone soils, which help to draw out minerality and then amplify it.
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.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"This is not a blend of vintages, but the vintage is not visible anywhere on the label to simplify them and be able to use the same ones across different harvests. I tasted the NV Cr?mant du Jura from the 2012 vintage -- a very dry, pure Chardonnay matured in contact with the lees for 18 months and bottled as a Brut, with less than three grams of sugar. The nose is clean and subtle, with some simple notes of white fruit, flowers and a little yeast character. The palate is fresh, equally clean, straightforward and easy to drink. The appellation started in 1995 and the first Cr?mant here is from 1996; the sparkling wines are quite popular locally and often represent a significant percentage in some cellars. 3,000 bottles produced."

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.
