Mount Eden Chardonnay Estate 2013 Product #33039 (In Stock)

An American classic showin much more early appeal than usual.

"The 2013 Chardonnay is especially ripe and voluptuous in this vintage because of the drought, almost unusually so. Yellow peach, candied orange peel and pineapple are front and center. The good news with the 2013 is that it will drink well early, but the bad news - if it can be called that - is that the wine is a bit on the overt side. Voluptuous, racy and oily, the 2013 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The 2013 finishes with a real sense of weight and textural richness that only adds to its considerable appeal."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"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."Wine Advocate 91 points

"Very distinctive, with a unique profile of flinty limestone, minerally citrus, green pear, honeydew and honeysuckle flavors, enlivened by zesty acidity, floral scents and a long, mouthwatering aftertaste that keeps repeating the core themes. Has an excellent track record for aging."Wine Spectator 93 points
