The 1973 vintage of this fabulous Chardonnay took first place in the famous 1976 "Paris Wine Tasting" (Judgment of Paris). It got 132 points and beat out all the French whites....way to go Napa!! The Paris tasting is what put Napa Valley on the proverbial "wine map". Have you seen Bottle Shock?
in 1973, The owner of this vineyard, Mike Grgich, was working at Chateau Montelena and he was the one who made the famous Chardonnay that took first place in the famous 1976 "Paris Wine Tasting" that beat out all the "French" whites!!
Delicious Chardonnay....love it!
