User Reviews for Mount Eden Vineyards Estate Bottled Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:

Tasting Notes at Release ( March 1998): The style of the '96 vintage is ripe and rounder than usual. Hints of cardamom, anise, and hazelnut add interest to the overall lemon and melon flavors. Barrel-fermented and aged in new Burgundy barrels, this 1996 finishes with the energy and length you have come to expect. Typical of the Chardonnay grown atop Mount Eden, it is slow to evolve. After bottling in the summer following the vintage, it still needs a year or two more aging in the bottle to become sublime. Therefore, be patient: ten-year-old bottles can be outrageously good.
