Production is a limited 4,000 cases and the wines are available via the winery's mailing list. Aubert's career in winemaking reads like a fantasy, with his 1989 start as assistant winemaker at More »

A lovely wine. More austere and much more citrus than the 2005. Likely to develop a bit more complexity in the next two years.

The 2006 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard looks to be the best of the litter, so to speak, in this vintage. Striking liquid minerality intermixed with quince, citrus blossom, crushed rocks, and white flowers are all present in this exceptionally concentrated, beautifully pure Chardonnay that, despite being aged in 100% new oak, reveals very little oak. This is another spectacular Chardonnay from Mark Aubert. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years, as I suspect these 2006s are on a faster evolutionary track than the 2005s. Obviously, there is no 2006 Quarry or Reuling Chardonnay.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
