2017 Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay


95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Estate is beautifully expressed this vintage, scented of warm citrus, honeycomb and a singular undercurrent of spices. The palate is satiny with full, ripe fruit energized by bright freshness and mineral character, and the wine finishes very long, pure and uplifted. It improved slowly over several days and will benefit from time in the cellar or a long decant. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

Outer quote mark Jeffrey and Ellie Patterson’s Mount Eden vineyard is a trove of heritage vines, including descendants of the Chardonnay cuttings Paul Masson brought from Burgundy in the early 1900s to plant at his La Cresta Vineyard just to the south. The current generation of vines that bore the Mount Eden clone were planted in the 1990s, today yielding a small, concentrated crop that Patterson transforms into an elegant, substantial and complex Chardonnay. His 2017 has shape and structure: It’s meaty and rich up front, tingling with lemon clarity and red-apple-skin freshness in the end. Wielding power without any sense of alcohol or heat, this vintage has a great future ahead. (JG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
