Domaine Eden's 2013 Chardonnay is subtle, poised and gracious to the core. Dried pear, dried flowers, sage, mint and chamomile grace the palate in this understated, exquisite Chardonnay. Hints of smoke, slate and dried pear reappear on the super-classic, expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. Quite simply, the 2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay is a tremendous wine for the money. In 2013, the blend is approximately 72% declassified Mt. Eden juice and 28% wine from the Domaine Eden estate proper. Jeffrey Patterson is one of the most laid back producers in California. His wines? They speak volumes. The Chardonnays are particularly strong this year at both the Domaine Eden and Mount Eden labels. Patterson told me 2013 a drought year, reminds him of 1984. I will take his word for it, as I was barely a teenager at the time. But tasting the wines, it is clear they are truly special from top to bottom. (AG)
Extremely refreshing and lovely on the nose, this slightly lower-priced bottling from the Mount Eden team shows nectarine, crisp pluot, cherimoya flesh and the lightest hint of Key-lime zest on the nose. The structure on the sip is intense, with stony crushed-concrete elements and flavors of lime rind, cold Gala apple and gunmetal. (MK)
A beautiful white that offers textbook notes of ripe orchard fruits, toasted nuts, white flowers and a hints of minerality and honeysuckle, the 2013 Chardonnay Estate (100% barrel fermented and aged ten months in 35% new French oak) is medium-bodied, supple and polished on the palate, with terrific fruit intensity, notable purity and freshness, and a rock solid finish. This is an impressive, delicious Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years. These Domaine Eden releases by Jeffrey Patterson represent solid values, as well as great introductions into the style of the more expensive Mount Eden releases. (JD)
Heady stone-fruits nose; has power and vividness. Rich and glossy on the palate with peach and cream flavours. Will please many as it pulls off the full-bodied act very well while retaining freshness and clarity.
