Aubert Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018

$109

99 points - limited                    Limited new release from cult Chardonnay producer Mark Aubert. Robert Parker: "...Mark Aubert continues to set the bar incredibly high for the world-class quality of his Burgundian-styled, remarkable Chardonnays, which come from relatively cool sites spread from Rutherford in Napa Valley to the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast. As I indicated last year, Aubert is at the top of his game, and it is hard to believe any Chardonnay winemaker in the world is turning out a half-dozen Chardonnays at this qualitative level year in and year out. He has had an incredible run of great success, after being mentored by none other than the reclusive and supremely talented Helen Turley when he took over the winemaking job at Peter Michael, then proceeded on to impressive sojourns at Colgin Estate as well as Tom Futo’s winery in Oakville."

Our favorite Aubert is the appellation blend. Exceptional at what we consider to be a reasonable price for such a high quality example.

Showed a bit tight, even after a thorough decanting. I’d hold off on popping the 18’s.

Aromas of lemon curd and white flowers. Crushed gravel and stone fruit on the palate. Seemingly a softer oak treatment than his single vineyard chards. Bright acidity on the finish. A wonderful blend.
