94 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The very expressive 2017 L'Etoile En Banode is a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin from a vineyard planted with the two varietals by Jean Gros in 1970. The wine is powerful but delicate and fluid; there's something feminine in the traditional wines from Montbourgeau. 2017 was a low-yielding and concentrated year that suits the flor style. The two grapes fermented together in stainless steel and then matured in a 2,500-liter oak vat (the volume produced) for one year, after which time the wine was transferred to 500-liter oak barrels that were never again topped up. This has a strong influence from the flor yeasts, with notes of curry and morel mushrooms, and a strong salinity and minerality. This bottling transcends the challenging character of the year. Drink: 2021-2027. (Apr 2021)"
