14’ Aubert Eastside Chardonnay The color has gotten a bit darker in the last two years. The nose is full of grapefruit blossom, lemon grass/peel. Palate- Rich, powerful, tightly wound.
Pineapple, peach, toasted almond, crème brûlée, crushed rock, touch of pepper, integrated acidity, and flawless balance. Starts to truly come together as it warms up. Drinking in it’s prime now .

This is a more opulent version of Aubert’s Larry Hyde and Sons, but not quite as powerful as Aubert’s other SVD chards. It’s got the lemon square tart, guava, and marshmallow bites, but everything is less toasted. Just slightly toned down. I think this was @Mark Flesher ‘s white of the day, which makes sense since he’s a Larry Hyde & Sons fan!

14’ Aubert Eastside Chardonnay. Just not a fair fight. 6- 8 great years in it.

Not as cloying as some of the Aubert SVDs I've had lately, more light on it's feet and pure...still a bit more sweetness than older vintages but this is young.

This to me is great chardonnay American or French. Restrained but full bodied no perceptible oak. Mellow white fruit . Perfect with Maryland crab cakes

Always delightful, and certainly drinking well in the current window. Poured a little cooler than the Kongsgaard, and also benefitted from approaching room temperature. While slightly edged out by the 13 Kong in my opinion tonight, still a beautiful benchmark Aubert wine.
