Domaine Eden Pinot Noir 2017
Domaine Eden Pinot Noir 2017 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant it, but best to open it half an hour before serving. Domaine Eden was bought by Mount Eden Vineyards in 2007. Initially planted with clonal selections of Mount Eden Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, this mountaintop estate now also includes clonal selections of Pinot Noir from Dijon and California. Here viticulture is approached with the same rigorous sustainability standards of Mount Eden and with low yields. Despite being close to Mount Eden, the soil at Domaine Eden is different from the estate’s Franciscan schist. The resulting wines express a good load of varietal fruit with ample flavors and less minerality. Pinot Noir grapes are grown on a north-facing slope at 480 meters and harvested between the end of August and mid-September. Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged in French oak for 12 months and later bottled without clarification or filtration. Domaine Eden Pinot Noir is a powerful wine with intense red color. The nose smells of sandalwood, damp earth, violets, and red raspberries. On the palate, it brings layers of red fruits with bright acidity and delicate tannins. The overall complexity and generosity are alluring. This wine has the aging potential typical of Pinot Noir. It’s the perfect companion for any mushroom preparations or pork.
