Aubert Lauren Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Aubert’s Lauren Chardonnay is my favorite out of the entire lineup. I’ve had many different vintages as far back as ‘09 and all have been incredible. Tonight, this showed more savory/herbal notes and less fruit than I expected. Blind, I would have called this Aubert’s Ritchie due to the waxy, nutty characteristics I associate with that vineyard. Lots of cashew, almond and butterscotch. The fruit was very deep, almost reductive? Grilled pear and grilled over-ripened lemon. Creamy texture with a very complex structure. Always kind of you to share these wines, @Dan Fitzgerald

Closest US juice to a French exemplar (produced by a Frenchman). Stunning at 60F.

13’ Aubert Lauren. Without a doubt one of the best 2013’s California Chardonnay’s. Okay top 10!?!? Rich & graceful. Simply put “Mark Aubert “. Pear, apricot, almonds, hazelnut. Oak has integrated so nicely.

13' Aubert Lauren Chardonnay. Poured a little bit in my glass… needs a short decanting. What's not to love!

Nose of toast & minerals, body a little shirt with a slight bitterness in the finish. May have held on to this too long
