An utterly enticing, striking wine, the 2012 Chardonnay is captivating from the very first taste. Lemon oil, white flowers and mint are some of the signatures. The 2012 remains subtle and hushed in the glass, with striking interplay of fruit, acidity and bright saline notes. Above all else, the 2012 speaks to pure class. Once again, Mount Eden's Chardonnay stakes its claim as one of this country's oenological jewels. The 2012 appears to have a very bright future. Readers who can find it should not hesitate to pick it up. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

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.
