Mark Aubert is one of the contenders for California's finest practitioner of Burgundian-styled, yet classic, California Chardonnays. His offerings are all made like grand cru Burgundies with full malolactic, the use of French oak and lees stirring, but the purity of fruit, the textural dimensions, and the stunning singularity of these Chardonnays can only be matched by a handful of other Chardonnay producers in the world. He's that good. Aubert's 2012s, which I have enjoyed multiple times out of bottle since I purchased most of them, merit the scores I gave them last year. Those include the...2012 Chardonnay Sugar Shack Estate (99)... he is at the top of his game, producing enormously complex and satisfying wines... He is clearly at the pinnacle of his profession. Kudos! Robert Parker

Floral aromas and honeysuckle rise from the glass, very yellow and bright, a little confection that overpowers at first but it blows off quickly. Honey, lemon curd, hazelnut. I really like these new SVDs from Aubert.

Always great. Sugar Shack and Eastside are my current favorites in the Aubert chards, but there are no losers in that lineup. I can’t imagine this getting much better with more time or, more accurately, I don’t think the improvement that might be realized with more time in a cellar would justify the risk of going beyond peak. That being said, I prefer to err a bit on the side of too young versus too old in most things.
