95pts (AG) Mount Eden's 2010 Chardonnay is stunning. Honeysuckle, tangerine, apricot, and crème brulee literally jump from the glass A vivid, exotic wine, the 2010 is constantly changing in the glass. Stylistically, the 2010 is a little richer than Mount Eden fans are used to, but all the elements are in the right place. The 2010 verges on the edge of tropical aromas and flavors that are quite rare for young Mount Eden Chardonnays. Ideally, the 2010 is best left alone for a few years to allow some of the baby fat to drop off. I imagine it will always be a bit on the exotic side. I remain convinced the Mount Eden Pinot Noir Estate and Chardonnay Reserve are among the greatest wines being made in California today. As usual, the Mount Eden Chardonnay spends about ten months in oak prior to being bottled, while the Reserve gets an additional six or so months in tank. Mount Eden fans will also want to check out the Domaine Eden wines, which deliver superb quality for the money.  Antonio Galloni Vinuous July 2013
