2012 Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard
Price: $170.00    Sale Price: $140.00
Quantity in Stock: 5

(98 points) (Note from 2013 review, re-reviewed with no new note in 2014) We finished the Chardonnay portion of the tasting with Mark Aubert’s favorite wine, the 2012 Chardonnay Lauren Estate, which comes from rich Goldridge soils. There are 1,000 cases of this straw/greenish-colored beauty fashioned from various clones, including the Old Wente, Hyde, Hudson Corton-Charlemagne selection and the Mt. Eden clones. It possesses more of a tannic backbone than its siblings because of its grip. Full-bodied with lots of honeyed citrus, orange marmalade and abundant fruit on the attack and mid-palate, this youthful Chardonnay seems barely touched by its oak aging. (RP) (12/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

2012 Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard
Price: $165.00    Sale Price: $125.00
Quantity in Stock: 8

(95 points)  (Note from 2013 review, re-reviewed with no new note in 2014) Mark Aubert farms 39-year-old vines in the famous Ritchie Vineyard. At 1,200 cases, the 2012 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is the largest production cuvee of these Chardonnays. It reveals a more evolved nose of smoky hazelnuts, honeysuckle, and tropical fruits, less minerality, and full-bodied unctuosity buttressed by crisp acids. It is a fatter, richer, complex, more California-styled Chardonnay...(RP) (12/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2013 Aubert Chardonnay Lauren
Price: $190.00    Sale Price: $150.00
Quantity in Stock: 1

(98 points) The 2013 Chardonnay Lauren Estate is made from 15-year-old vines from the old Wente and Mt. Eden clones of Chardonnay planted in Goldridge soils. This wine offers loads of nectarine, honeysuckle, liquefied rock, quince and white currants. The wine has incredible richness, no real evidence of any of the 100% new oak it is aged in, and a multi-dimensional, long finish. This compelling Chardonnay is still young and capable of lasting 10-15 years. (RP) (12/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2013 Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie
Price: $160.00    Sale Price: $130.00
Quantity in Stock: 2

(96 points) From the oldest vines that Aubert works with, the 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is made from the old Wente clone favored by so many of the top winemakers for Chardonnay. It boasts the wet rocks and candied citrus, the white peach and pineapple notes, has a strong green hue to the light gold color, and a full-bodied, powerful finish. It is a ten-year wine at the minimum. (RP) (12/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2014 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons
Price: $160.00    Sale Price: $130.00
Quantity in Stock: 6

(95 Points)  "The 2014 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons has a greenish hue to its light-gold color, a fresh, lively nose of poached pears, citrus oil, honeysuckle, a hint of pineapple and tangerine. This is a beautiful, full-bodied Chardonnay to drink over the next decade or more. The Wine Advocate


2014 Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard Sonoma Coast
Price: $170.00    Sale Price: $130.00
Quantity in Stock: 3

(97 points) The old vines certainly show well in the 2014 Chardonnay Ritchie, with an almost Alsatian-like petrol nose that is starting to come on. This wine that is full-bodied, with incredible ripeness, purity and overall equilibrium, offers up plenty of tropical fruit and citrus, white peach and pineapple. The wine should drink well for at least another decade. 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. (RP) (10/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2014 Aubert Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard
Price: $180.00    Your Price: $158.40
Quantity in Stock: 2

(98 Points) "The 2014 Pinot Noir UV-SL is made from both the Vosne-Romanée and Calera clones of Pinot Noir. This is pure Sonoma Coast Pinot, with a sweet nose of root beer, blackcurrants, black cherries, and forest floor. It is the most densely colored of all four Pinot Noirs, and shows the biggest body, structure and richness. I also think it’s the most concentrated. This is an amazing wine and may have been the best 2014 Pinot Noir I tasted on this last trip. It should drink well for 10-15+ years. " The Wine Advocate


2013 Aubert Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
Price: $120.00    Sale Price: $90.00
Quantity in Stock: 1

(93 Points) "The 2013 Pinot Noir is fabulous. Pliant, supple and expressive, the Sonoma Coast is a window into this collection of superb Pinots. Dark red cherries, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the notes that caress the palate in this perfumed, exquisite Pinot Noir from Mark Aubert. At many estates, the Sonoma Coast would be the top of the line; here it is the entry-level bottling." Vinous / Antonio Galloni


2013 Aubert Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard
Price: $180.00    Sale Price: $150.00
Quantity in Stock: 3

(96 points) The 2013 Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard is the most opulent and extroverted of these Pinots, but it is also the most compelling. Endowed with huge fruit, and an explosive mid-palate, the UV-SL captures the very best of this style of Pinot. Layers of dark, inky fruit built to a crescendo of intensity and juiciness. Hints of lavender, spices and violets wrap around the finish, with plenty of support from beams of underlying tannin. (AG) (1/2015) Vinous


2009 Aubert Pinot Noir UV Vineyard

(93 points) The 2009 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard once again shows the richness and heft of the clay-rich soils in this site. This is an especially dense Pinot, even by Aubert’s standards, that needs another year or so in bottle to start shedding some of its baby fat. Despite the wine’s richness, there is more than enough underlying minerality to give the wine a sense of proportion and harmony. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. (AG) (2/2012)  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
