Wine Review: 2011 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California

Chateau Montelena Chardonnay: This Chardonnay is clean and focused with lemon, stone, and green apple that shines through to the finish. What makes it attractive is its interesting zesty yet creamy mid-palette with layered textures of peach and pear that lead to its long mineral finish. It is a beautifully made wine that you will enjoy pairing with roasted meats or chicken and pasta dishes served in a creamy sauce.

Rating: Excellent (92) | $50 | 13.8% ABV
