Product Description

Domaine Eden is a nearby mountaintop wine estate purchased in 2007. Modeled after Mount Eden, it was founded and built by the late Tom Mudd in 1983, who initially planted the Mount Eden clonal selections of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, which evolved to include Pinot Noir from various Dijon and California selections. This is the former home of Cinnabar Winery.

This property inspired a new wine brand, Domaine Eden, which focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from this special site and Bordeaux varieties from Mount Eden’s larger home, the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The 2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay shows a solid core of youthful citrus, orange blossom and honeysuckle aromas that combine with flavors that are broad, savory and multilayered with a seamless, long finish. Still a baby, this 2013 should drink well for another decade. This wine is composed of 72% Mount Eden estate fruit and 28% Domaine Eden fruit.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Extremely refreshing and lovely on the nose, this slightly lower-priced bottling from the Mount Eden team shows nectarine, crisp pluot, cherimoya flesh and the lightest hint of Key-lime zest on the nose. The structure on the sip is intense, with stony crushed-concrete elements and flavors of lime rind, cold Gala apple and gunmetal."

"Domaine Eden's 2013 Chardonnay is subtle, poised and gracious to the core. Dried pear, dried flowers, sage, mint and chamomile grace the palate in this understated, exquisite Chardonnay. Hints of smoke, slate and dried pear reappear on the super-classic, expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. Quite simply, the 2013 Domaine Eden Chardonnay is a tremendous wine for the money. In 2013, the blend is approximately 72% declassified Mt. Eden juice and 28% wine from the Domaine Eden estate proper."

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"A beautiful white that offers textbook notes of ripe orchard fruits, toasted nuts, white flowers and a hints of minerality and honeysuckle, the 2013 Chardonnay Estate (100% barrel fermented and aged ten months in 35% new French oak) is medium-bodied, supple and polished on the palate, with terrific fruit intensity, notable purity and freshness, and a rock solid finish. This is an impressive, delicious Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years."
