This is the best Chardonnay I’ve ever had. It tastes like crisp pears with a little bit of melon.

Green apples, lemon and oak; pleasing, pale yellow color- a nice compliment to my lobster tails.

Light golden color, medium body; citrus, apple, pear. Typically Napa Chardonnay not my fave but no big oak/buttery smack here at all.

CHATEAU MONTELENA Chardonnay 2013
適度な酸と高すぎない糖度のバランスが良く、全体的にミネラル感が感じられる。パリテイスティング1位なだけある!

Floral notes on the nose, smooth, easy sipping. Subtle flavors of crisp pear and green muskmelon. After breathing for an hour, a lovely oaky finish erupted. (Grilled, stuffed mushrooms, kielbasa bites, grilled asparagus, vegetable cruets on the lanai w/ an early summer sunset.)

Dave says he smells pieces of Irish Nay. In other words, Chards O’Nay. Oh lord, although this is tonight’s third bottle I assure you we are sampling just a skoach of each. For research. This is deliciously funky- moldy, mushroomy, tastes nothing like it smells.
