It’s the 40th Anniversary of Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay’s stunning victory in the Paris Tasting of 1976.  A whole new world of wine followed. See here for a recent article, “Sips that Shocked”, on the Paris Tasting with an awesome photo of the telegram Jim Barrett sent home to Napa letting everyone know about the win, and click here to see an article that discusses the tasting and a recent celebration at Meadowood in Napa, where the 2009 Chardonnay shined and highlighted the ageability of Montelena’s Chardonnays.
