Aubert can do no wrong in our minds. Nor can my wife when it comes to my fave fruit cobbler...
Nose displays almonds and white flowers. The palate is so balanced, nuanced, elegant and precise. A perfect structure which segues into some sexy chalky minerality. Moderate sweetness and relaxed acidity define the individual identity of this chard.

Wifey and I concur with the score. May have approached this too early. Lacks the depth and complexity we have come to expect from this vineyard. Still very good. Hoping that bottle age brings a little more intensity, although it may just bring age.

Day 2 and this wine has has switched gears and developed more urgency. Much improved, so I’ll take the score up 2 pts. This reminds me of a quote “Instant gratification takes too long” - Carrie Fisher 😏

Holy underwear!! This. Wine. Rocks. So good on so many levels....Bright and powerful. Yolky but with a swirling whirlwind middle and finish. Vibrant but quite smooth. It has a complexity with a number of flavors - sweet fruit, stony minerals and great grip. Had this with some baked halibut steaks and it was a beautiful experience.

Not that I’m ever surprised by an awesome chardonnay from Mark Aubert, but the 2018 UV-SL is the closest thing I’ve had to my favorite of his chards, the Lauren Vineyard wines. This is just spectacular.

Another Awesome Aubert! A bit more yolky and less minerality than the Lauren but still tons of back end grip and a lovely long finish. It’s dense to start and thick with flavor but the looooongg finish brings nuance. Great straight up but on snowy Friday with Salerno style spaghetti and egg it was perfect.
