Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

$44.95

  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."

Oak, lemon, pear, straw, and a touch of slate and brioche. Elegant, clean, and layered.

Elegant in the execution of flavor, with light French oak and pear. Soft touch of lemon zest, mineral, and straw. Great acidity and balance.

Classic Napa Chard. Perfect straw color. On the nose there’s pear, green apple, lemon zest and pear. On the mouthfeel there’s oak, butter, vanilla, citrus and grapefruit. It is rich, bold and artfully balanced. Loved this chard, so complex but precise at the same time.

Terrific California Chard. Just the right amount of oak supports lush stone fruit and chalk.

This resonates with me.bright, crisp, and refreshing. Light on the oak, but forward with wet stone and acid. Elegant.

A wonderfully beautiful fragrance of apricot, vanilla and straw with a nice crispiness! A really nice full body/mouth feel, with flavors of apricot and oak that is silky and lingers on the palate! Love it.
