2016 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1392666 94 points Vinous

 Montelena's 2016 Chardonnay is terrific. Fresh, nuanced and light on its feet, the 2016 is striking for its freshness and understated intensity. Lemon peel, almond, chamomile and floral overtones add shades of nuance throughout, but above all else, the 2016 stands out for its bright, crystalline tension and overall energy. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG)  (3/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Sourced mostly from a tiny site in Oak Knoll, the 2016 Chardonnay Napa Valley sees no malolactic fermentation and is brought up in 10-20% new French oak. It's a steely, racy effort that has pretty notes of tart citrus, apple blossom, lemon, and hints of minerality, Clean, medium-bodied, very vibrant and fresh, it's balanced and lengthy. It's going to age as well.  (1/2019)

K&L Notes

The legend … a Napa Valley icon and probably the only Chardonnay to have a feature film made about it. Montelena has stayed true to the style of Chardonnay that won the storied 1976 "Judgment of Paris" tasting.
