Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

$49.99

  Chateau Montelena is one of California's historic wineries and consistent producer of some of the best Chardonnay in Napa Valley. Discover why Chateau Montelena Chardonnay beat the French at the Paris tasting in 1976! Robert Parker: "Caramelized citrus, apple skin and a touch of tangerine oil are all present in the medium-bodied, refreshing, basically unoaked or neutral oaked style of Chardonnay that Chateau Montelena’s produced in 2013. This style is meant to show the fruit and acid of the varietal. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."

Out of Mag. Tasting pitch perfect: clay, mineral, white flowers, the stones of stone fruit, heady. Lean, unripe peach. Has the finish of Chablis (tart wet chalk) but has a more yellow fruit entry. Pretty. I want cases to age.

Founded in 1882 by Alfred Tubbs. In 1972, under the leadership of James Barrett, replanting began. Today Jim's son, Bo, is now its Master Winemaker. Ripe stone fruit aromas with notes of honey. In the palate crisp pear, melon and lemon zest come forth wrapped in vanilla oak. Lingering finish ending with creamy notes fruit ending with hints of pepper spice.

Nice Classic Chardonnay expected to age well. Slight tartness should smooth out with age. Not buttery like many other Napa Chardonnays.

2014 Chateau Montelana Chardonnay saved for a special occasion. Sharp and acidic at first, but mellow after opening up and paired with food. Notes of citrus, lemon and slight hints of butter after taste.

Light gold color. Complexity on the nose with lemon curd, oak, hint of butter, honeysuckle, honeydew melon, star fruit, and slate. Nice acidity on palate adding structure.
