"One of the few California Chardonnays that behaves like a grand cru Chablis is Chateau Montelena’s non-malolactic Chardonnay Napa" according to Robert Parker, and today we've got a deal on this celebrated wine.
Chateau Montelena is one of a handful of California producers to have delivered consistent quality for over 30 years. Their Chardonnay is always compelling and the winery has remained dedicated to their house style. "I have always admired Montelena's Chardonnay. It is a model of purity, intensity, and balance", says Parker. The 2014 is another in a long line of success from this renowned property.
The 2014 vintage for Chardonnay was another solid year in Napa, with the Wine Spectator praising the "fine quality", while Decanter explains that Chardonnay "excelled", producing "intense and nervy" wines.
Whether you're already familiar with the fabled Chardonnays produced by Chateau Montelena, or were waiting for the right opportunity to check out this notorious wine, here's the chance to stock up at a terrific price. Thoroughly enjoyable now, this winery has consistently shown that their Chardonnays have the ability to age, so grab some to lay down as well. Cheers!
