Chateau Montelena Chardonnay Napa Valley

Wine Details





Wine Description

A delicate and complex bouquet of lychee, white peach, citrus, orange blossoms and hints of toasted almonds is supported by a strong backbone of minerality. Soft and fleshy flavors are deftly integrated with bright citrus and subtle notes of oak on the long and pleasant finish.

    Best Chardonnay we've had. Enjoyed it with friends while viewing bottle shock. Would like to try other vintages as well.
