Producer Notes

Mark Aubert's four Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays - Lauren, Reuling, Quarry and Ritchie - have risen to cult status at a dizzying speed.

Drink Dates 2014-2019

Aubert's 2011 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard flows across the palate with hints of butter, marzipan, spices, nectarines and dried apricots. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2011 is another of the more overt wines in this range. Still, there is more than enough underlying minerality to balance the fruit. The old Wente and Montrachet clones work well here, but the vines are only 12 years old, which suggests the best is still very much in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.

Ultrarich and intense, with waves of smoke, fig, apricot and tangerine flavors, firming and narrowing on the finish.

A lot going on the nose here. Floral notes, along with pineapple, tropical fruits, tangerine, butterscotch, and allspice. Much the same on the palate, with burnt caramel, green apple, and a spicy lemon compote finish. Great stuff, and even better the next evening, with the green apple having faded away, but everything else still there.

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.
