Just a stunning example of a chard. Our only bottle of this designation.
Brioche, brown sugar and capsicum on the nose. Palate surprises with a touch of effervescence, which subsided. Very tropical notes, with a touch of spice box. Finishes with marzipan and moderate sweetness - Inn at Pound Ridge (Jean Georges). Date night. — 9 days ago
This was a special bottle, as I’ve held on to this to wait until my wife could enjoy after the birth of our daughter. Aubert is our favorite chardonnay producer and each time a bottle is opened, smiles abound! (Background is a small peek in to the amazing nursery my wife decorated).
Our favorite Chardonnay producer does it again (and again, and again, etc). I have no problem enjoying these shortly after release (aside from their Larry Hyde & Sons offering, which has too much acidity for my liking the first year or two), but when you can keep your hands off them for a few years, they can be truly magical. I think 5-7yrs post vintage is the sweet spot. Slightly golden in the glass, with Aubert’s signature lemon cream jumping from the glass alongside honeycomb, salted popcorn kernel, and custard aromatics. Powerful, yet nimble on the palate showing astounding flavor...carmelized brown sugar, roasted nuts and honeysuckle with a savory sea salt component toward the finish. The depth that these Chardonnays show is nothing short of impeccable with everything in balance. I actually think this could be at its peak in the next year, but it’s certainly making a case it’s at its best now! — 9 days ago
This wine has its own personality. Almost has the qualities of a Burgundian white. Nose of popcorn kernel, dried herbs, mushroom, brie, and some peach. The entry was a little bit dirty. Rosemary popcorn. Buttered mushroom. Under-ripe peaches and mangos. A little 'rough' around the edges but definitely a head scratcher. I think this one will develop over the next 5 or so years. — 4 days ago
