MONTES MONTES - Alpha Chardonnay - 2016

MONTES Alpha Chardonnay 2016

See the wine detail page

93 Points

This is a very serious chardonnay with pie-crust and cooked-apple character. Full body, tight and focused. Beautiful and long. Small percentage of new wood and malolactic fermentation. Excellent.
