Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

$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."

2013. Scent of jasmine and lemon peel. Notes of pear, green apple skin, apricots. Has fresh acid and minerality at the finish. So good and reminded me of Chablis. Turns out I like Chardonnay after all! Want to try more of the Judgment of Paris wineries.

This is the best Chardonnay I’ve ever had. It tastes like crisp pears with a little bit of melon.

Green apples, lemon and oak; pleasing, pale yellow color- a nice compliment to my lobster tails.

Light golden color, medium body; citrus, apple, pear. Typically Napa Chardonnay not my fave but no big oak/buttery smack here at all.

CHATEAU MONTELENA Chardonnay 2013 適度な酸と高すぎない糖度のバランスが良く、全体的にミネラル感が感じられる。パリテイスティング1位なだけある!

Floral notes on the nose, smooth, easy sipping. Subtle flavors of crisp pear and green muskmelon. After breathing for an hour, a lovely oaky finish erupted. (Grilled, stuffed mushrooms, kielbasa bites, grilled asparagus, vegetable cruets on the lanai w/ an early summer sunset.)
