Alcohol not fully integrated and very high in alcohol (15 degrees). Quite flat in taste. Heady.

Showing very well and put on weight and some alcohol blew off on day 2. Creamy rich yellow pear, honeyed overtones and nice oak treatment. 2-3 for optimum drinking.

I had an ‘09 Aubert Lauren a couple years ago and it was drinking superbly....but now it has fallen off a cliff. The fruit is all but gone, there is a weedy muddled quality with notes of marzipan and petrol. Aubert chards are some of the best CA has to offer but if this perfectly stored bottle from @romo is any indication, they are not made for the long haul.

Buttery, vanilla, lychee, dry, still nice acidity and a bit burnt butter.

Lots of viscosity and just a delightful palpable mouthfeel. Pear, cut flowers and the essence of a babbling mountain brook. To me, the Lauren has always been the classiest of the Aubert SVDs.

Aubert’s Lauren Chardonnay is my favorite out of the entire lineup. I’ve had many different vintages as far back as ‘09 and all have been incredible. Tonight, this showed more savory/herbal notes and less fruit than I expected. Blind, I would have called this Aubert’s Ritchie due to the waxy, nutty characteristics I associate with that vineyard. Lots of cashew, almond and butterscotch. The fruit was very deep, almost reductive? Grilled pear and grilled over-ripened lemon. Creamy texture with a very complex structure. Always kind of you to share these wines, @Dan Fitzgerald

Another 4th Friday for the books!

Dan was kind enough to bring and open this knowing Aubert’s Lauren is my favorite. This bottle never fails to impress me. I love the honeyed marzipan, sweet lemon cream nose and the rounded, luscious, cashew/smoked popcorn notes on the palate.
