Wines from Napa Valley in California has long been a great favorite for Wineblogg although our budget sometimes have protested loudly. So when I recently went to Southern California , I had to bring with me Chateau Montelena to US to be on the safe side. If you are following our wine blog regularly you may have noticed that I paid homage to the previous vintage of this magical good Chardonnay. And the launched vintage of 2011 certainly lives up to all expectations.

Chateau Montelena Chardonnay (nr 71649) för 301 kr
Chardonnay lover that I am, I am seduced by this wine's wonderfully balanced aroma and flavor with nuances of minerals, mango, pineapple, citrus and nuts. So silky seductive, yet at the same time a fullness that creates magic in the palate.

Talk about wine for a delicious seafood symphony, ideally including lobster. And how lucky we Swedish wine consumers can buy this wine for 15 USD less compared to wine stores in California. Just to thank the producer and the Swedish importer Terrific Wines for this generosity. And we shall we immediately reciprocate this fact by buying out the stock. For believe me, US probably best Chardonnay is worth every penny.
