One of the sexiest Chardonnays in the entire portfolio seems to emerge from the only Napa vineyard Mark Aubert has, the Sugar Shack Estate in Rutherford. The 2013 Chardonnay Sugar Shack offers caramelized apples, brioche, creme brvlee, honeyed citrus, white currants, some liquefied stones, a touch of clove, and fabulous, full-bodied ripeness...Made exclusively from the Montrachet clone of Chardonnay, it can be expected to drink well for another ten years... Mark Aubert is certainly one of a handful of California's finest practitioners of Burgundy-styled, classic California Chardonnays. He's at the top of the pyramid for these extraordinary wines...

Wine of the Day/Night. Great Aubert Sugar Shack Vineyard 2013. Very close to the 2012. Out of a MAGNUM too. The 13 has it all . Rich creamy, buttery with wonderful balance and acidity. The added acidity this vintage compared to past 12 gives this Chard more structure and balance. Weekend bash with Larry,Dr Bob, Dr Tony, Jim M, Marty Antimo and all there wives and girlfriends. Bravo 99+. CB
