[Dec. 15th] Chateau Montelena Chardonnay 2016




The Chardonnay which helped to put America on the wine producing map after winning the famous “Paris Tasting of 1976”. Wine maker Bo Barret allows nature to craft this wine interfering very little in its production. With no malolactic fermentation, this Chardonnay is lively and fresh, more reminiscent of a white burgundy. Green apple, candied orange peel and baking spices are integrated with a bright acidity and a depth in minerality building texture and weight. A perennial 92+ rated wine. Napa Valley
