Despite the fact that this is a second label for Mount Eden, Domaine Eden includes about a quarter fruit from Mount Eden's Estate Chardonnay. Its 11 months on the lees and 30% new oak give it a classy richness. Notes of toast, hazelnuts, and white flowers on the nose give way to a a pleasing raciness on the palate. This is an elegant Chardonnay that can be drunk now or age for several year.

Quite restrained but with plenty of power. Oak supports rather than dominates. Beautiful

Just rich enough, tight, pithy, grippy. Good for another 15 years, methinks.

Unreleased MEV Chard. Delicious. Slate, store fruit and the most incredible acidity that carries for 45+ seconds.

Nice body but with good cut, pear, lemon, minerals, good depth with a tart finish.

One of my absolute favorites! If I'm not going to be drinking Kongsgaard or Aubert, this is the chard I want in my glass. Rich, luscious and full bodied

Dry nicely balanced Chardonnay. Integrated oak and subtle fruit up front. Persistent finish and good acidity along the way.
