2014 CHATEAU MONTELENA “NAPA VALLEY” CHARDONNAY
One of California’s most celebrated Chardonnays, Chateau Montelena made a pivotal statement at the 1976 Judgement in Paris when their 1973 Chardonnay came in 1st place, eclipsing all other French and California Chardonnays at the historic tasting, as depicted in the movie Bottle Shock… Continuing their legacy of producing enchanting, bright, focused Chardonnays, the 2014 leaps from the glass with a melange of white peach, dried pineapple, candied ginger, and lemon oil, drenching your sensory receptors in thrilling levels of confidence. We loved this wine so much that we’re pouring it by-the-glass in our Yountville tasting room, and at $44.99/btl, Chateau Montelena delivers in grand fashion with their 2014 Chardonnay.
Remaining true to their roots and focusing on the pure expression of fruit, crisp acidity and mineral finish, Chateau Montelena is unlike many California Chardonnay producers that have adopted a creamy, buttery, profile with a heavier oak influence. Kept for just 10 months in French oak barrels, the 2014 is loaded with sliced pear, lemon preserves, shaved almonds and tangerine oil, and bears an impactful intensity and beautiful minerally finish. I strongly recommend a case of this iconic Napa Valley Chardonnay for your cellar.

2014 CHATEAU MONTELENA "NAPA VALLEY" CHARDONNAY
From Vinous, "The 2014 Chardonnay is bright, focused and finely-cut. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2014 much of its lifted, mid-weight personality. As always, the Montelena Chardonnay is done in a brisk, dry style, with blocked malolactic fermentation." 91
