Far removed from the main arteries of commerce, the village of L’Etoile would be a sleepy hamlet if it weren’t for the reputation of its wines. The name (etoile=star) comes from the shape of the tiny fossils that are abundant in the vineyards. It is the peculiarity of its soil and the quality of the wine that allows it to distinquish itself from other Jura wines.

This family estate is run by Alexandre Vandelle, whose holdings lie primarily on the slopes of Mont Muzard. He grows the full range of Jura grapes: Chardonnay, Savagnin, Poulsard et Trousseau.
