2009 Château Montelena Estate Chardonnay (Magnum)
Very much the Grand Cru Chablis of California rather than the buttery Meursault, Montelena Chardonnay has a bright backbone of acidity with glorious evolved notes of apricot and green apple and some delicate spices. Turning a light straw colour with 12 years of age it is clean and elegant from start to finish, and what a lovely finish it is.’ One of the finest Chardonnays outside Burgundy.
'Speaking of non-malolactic, the reserved 2009 Chardonnay exhibits delicate pear and honeysuckle notes as well as crisp, fresh acidity, medium body and a steely purity. This is often referred to as the Ric Forman style, but Montelena has been doing it as long as Ric has (as have such legendary wineries as Stony Hill).' 89 pts, Robert M Parker Jnr, Wine Advocate December 2010
