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

13’ Aubert Lauren. Without a doubt one of the best 2013’s California Chardonnay’s. Okay top 10!?!?
Rich & graceful. Simply put “Mark Aubert “. Pear, apricot, almonds, hazelnut. Oak has integrated so nicely. 🎯 Consuming this at just below room temperature.
Let it open up in your glass for about 30 minutes. No problem at all sitting this down for another 8+ years. Drink after 2018.

13' Aubert Lauren Chardonnay. Poured a little bit in my glass… needs a short decanting. What's not to love!

13 Aubert Lauren is very close to a perfect chard. Decant an hour! The balance & weight of this...

Nose of toast & minerals, body a little shirt with a slight bitterness in the finish. May have held on to this too long

Closest US juice to a French exemplar (produced by a Frenchman). Stunning at 60F.
