Food Pairings for Mount Eden Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay
This is a new wine for us, inspired by a trip I took to Burgundy in 2008. Many producers of the great White Burgundies make their Chardonnay's with a secondary aging on the yeast sediments. Following their lead I started by selecting specific lots of our Estate Chardonnay and combing all of the wine and lees into a small tank for this secondary aging. The mystical part is that over the ten months in tank the sediments disappear--just like in Champagne, the lees become the wine. As with our regular Estate Bottled Chardonnay this wine is profound. Aging slowly in the bottle (always a good sign) this wine has taken on extra dimension. The aromas and flavors which dominate the 2007 are enlivened by an extra dimension of viscosity from the lees. A fascinating study in how winemaking styles can influence our terrior-driven wine.
Aged 12 months in French Oak.
