Villa Mt. Eden Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley Grand Reserve Bien Nacido Vineyard 2004
Reviews:92 points Robert Parker Jr's The Wine Advocate Issue 166 8/28/06Grown at Mount Eden with the same care and attention to detail as our Estate Chardonnay, we selected these barrels to reflect our appellation rather than the estate. We think Robert Parker describes this wine the best: "Offering terrific minerality along with notes of pears, white peaches, earth and background oak, this intense, medium to full-bodied, rich Chardonnay possesses good underlying minerality as well as acidity."
External Reviews for Villa Mt. Eden Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley Grand Reserve Bien Nacido Vineyard
A brilliant Chardonnay from this historic producer high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2004 Chardonnay Estate offers a beautiful perfume of subtle pineapple, orange marmalade, buttered citrus, white currants, and wet rocks. In the mouth, it reveals stunning purity, crisp acidity, and a drinkability window of 7-10 years. It is very rich, but surprisingly light on its feet.
