Simply one of the most deliciously subtle, nutty, Burgundian CA Chardonnays I have tasted. A fitting tribute to Mike Grgich's 90th.

The true commemorative bottling, 2013 was 40 years after the 1973 Chateau Montelena made by Mike Grgich that swept the "Judgement of Paris".this wine has great balance with just enough tropical fruit to be interesting. Lots of Meursault-like character here

Subtle and Burgundian but with some nutty, toasty goodness that still ties it back to Cali. Very satisfying.

Had this too warm so not fair for me to say. But I thought it was too oaked. Good acid though

One of the best wines I’ve ever tasted. Nutty, and notes of vanilla and pineapple. Very special.

A tad bit sweet but all you would expect from a Grgich Chardonnay. Round with oak and caramel. A bit of brightness left with a nutty finish. Timing is right with this one.
