Chateau Montelena

Chateau Montelena is one of Napa Valley’s oldest estates, starting in 1882. The prohibition stalled work at this French style property and wasn’t restarted until 1972 when Jim Barret took over. The excellent Michael Grich was winemaker before starting his own estate. Now made by Jim’s son Bo, their Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay made them one of Nappa’s most respected. The estate also boasts a Jade Lake, a stunning wildlife sanctuary.

Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon The Montelena Estate 2009 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93+)

Montelena’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish. While many 2009s are a bit tight today, Montelena’s 2009 Estate is showing very nicely, although it is keeping some cards close to the vest. I imagine the 2009 will start to enter its prime drinking window around age 8-10 and drink well for at least another decade beyond that. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Chateau Montelena Chardonnay 2011 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

Scented of freshly squeezed lemons, lime leaves and orange blossoms with touches of struck match, crushed stones and peach kernels, the 2011 Chardonnay boasts incredible precision and depth, with a racy backbone cutting through the taut, medium-bodied palate, finishing long and steely.
