Mount Eden's 2018 Chardonnay offers a fabulous interplay of richness and energy. A wine of linear intensity, the 2018 could use a few more years in bottle to be at its best, but it is super-impressive, even now, in what is very clearly the early going. Lemon confit, mint, orange peel, spice and light butter notes all build into the articulate, polished finish. This is such a classy wine. Give it a few years to come together.

Honeyed nut, tangerine peel and baked apple aromas show on the nose of this bottling. A zesty acidity enlivens the palate from front to back, carrying toasty flavors of pan-seared apple, cashew, sea salt and white flower.

93pts Jeb Dunnuck

A Burgundy lover’s Chardonnay from the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2018 Chardonnay Estate is another terrific effort from this estate. Lots of honeyed citrus, nectarine, toast, crushed stone, and white flower notes define the bouquet, and it opens beautifully with time in the glass, gaining both richness and complexity. Medium-bodied, it stays tight and compact on the palate, with bright yet integrated acidity, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. As with all of Patterson's wines, it's brilliantly made, balanced, and well worth checking out.

93pts Wilfred Wong

The 2018 Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Chardonnay is racy, rich, and persistent; it is a real success story. This wine offers aromas and flavors of tart apples, mineral notes, and dried spices. Pair this with oven-baked game birds.

92pts Wine & Spirits

Mount Eden’s chardonnay vines—descended from cuttings that Paul Masson brought from Burgundy around 1900—grow a powerful, earthy white with structure to spare. Fermented in French oak barrels (50 percent new), this is smoky and savory, with a refreshing lemony cut that should serve it well through several years of bottle aging.

Winemaker Notes

Youthful in the nose, this Chardonnay has nuances of gardenia blossom, lime zest, and hazelnut. On the palate, there is beautiful restraint with a persistence of lemon, oak, and an intriguing minerality. Old World in style, this vintage is poised to age for twenty years with good cellaring.
