Chateau Montelena

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012

Such a classy bitch. Stylish, refined, and youthful. Drinking so well right now with a fantastic mineral backbone. The oak influence is seamless but pronounced.

Still a polarizing wine though with some blind tasters recognizing the wine’s quality while still being put off by the genre of oaked California Chardonnay.

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2014

My top all time Chardonnay. I’ve had many Art series in the past but this bottle had the depth and complexity that others lacked. A pineapple/tropical entry, then the mid palate explodes with lemon meringue, and a strong yeast element. There is serious weight, but the wine is so light on its feet. The length, complexity, and delicate detail are astonishing. Profound. — 4 days ago

Linda Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

A Matthiasson wine weekend!

Best bottle yet! Nice gold color. Meyer lemon, a hint of butter, and maybe a slight metallic element on the nose. Great balance of acidity and oak on the palate. Medium plus depth and medium finish. Amazing QPR.
