CA Montrachet. Mellow peach, golden apple fruit, ambitiously balanced. Not as zippy as CIX

It might seem I rate wines overly generously but then again I dont bother with wines I didnt like (which might be a mistake actually.) We drank a 1989 Groffier Clos de Beze during the same seating and while it was still quite visceral and extracted, it had the none of the Burgundian magic and I'd rate it 8.5. This Aubert on the other hand is a love child between a le montrachet and cali's perfect weather. This Chardonnay is the reason I fell in love with wine. magical, tasty, it elevated chef Barber's amazing array of fresh spring veggies to such great heights it really made me appreciate his genius and mother earth's wonderful gift to mankind. Yes, this chard literally made me high on life.

Merced crab feed. No crab, amazing chard. Nice citrus, floral, a little pepper at the end.

Full body with citrus but still exhibited hints of butter richness. Definitely a CA chardonnay.
