Chateau Montelena Unsold

by David on November 16, 2008

I’m a little tardy, here, but for those of you who listened to our episode on the movie Bottle Shock, you should know that numerous sources, including Eric Asimov of the New York Times, have reported that the sale of the venerable Chateau Montelena to the owners of grand Bordeaux estate, Cos d’Estournel, has been canceled.

The only comment as to why, was that “Reybier Investments has been unable to meet its obligations under its contract with the Barrett family.”  They didn’t specify what sort of obligation. Jim Barrett went on to say that the winery is no longer for sale and that the Barrett family plans “to realize the full potential of this unique and special property.”  Stay tuned…
