Chateau Julien 2012 Chardonnay, Barrel Selected, Monterey
Chateau Julien Wine Estate dates back to the mid 80's when they released their first Merlot and Chardonnay. Over the years the Merlot has achieved a lot of recognition and really become their signature wine. What's interesting is that their location in the Carmel Valley of Monterey is a prime one for Chardonnay and yet theirs has been somewhat over shadowed. That's unfortunate because their Chardonnay is extremely good. Or maybe it's fortunate because it means you can get this ripe, expressive Monterey Chard for a steal of a price. It's 100% Barrel fermented in French and American, Missouri oak where it ages an additional 8 months. It shows pear, lemon and butterscotch notes in a medium bodied, beautifully balanced style. Don't miss it!
