Grgich Chardonnay

A California Chardonnay Classic!!
Mike Grgich, winemaker was actually the winemaker of the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that won the Paris Tasting of 1976, known as the Judgment of Paris beating all the big name white Burgundy wines! (Made famous by the movie Bottleshock)

2018 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay...$34.99

The 2018 Chardonnay bursts from the glass with intense scents of white peaches, lemon curd, fresh grapefruit and lime blossoms with hints of sea spray and toasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully crisp and intense, with bags of citrus fruit and a satiny texture to counter all that vivacity, finishing long and minerally.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
Aromas of honeysuckle, nectarine, crushed stones and toasted hazelnut. Hint of white pepper. It’s full-bodied and creamy with crisp acidity. Dense and concentrated with a toasty, flinty finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
