Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard 2008, 750mL (WA97, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County

WA97, ST95
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `When I am tasting with Mark Aubert, it always seems to be that his personal favorite is the Lauren Vineyard. The 2008 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is a big, dense wine that tastes like concentrated lemon and citrus oils intermixed with quince, honeysuckle and white flowers. Drop in a few pebbles and gravel and you have a full-bodied, beautifully textured, dense, powerful Chardonnay that admirably matches finesse with a larger than life size. This 2008 should drink well for a decade.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: Mark Aubert`s brilliant Chardonnays continue to place this winery in California`s top Chardonnay hierarchy, sharing the same rarified air as Marcassin, Kongsgaard, Peter Michael, Luc Morlet, Kistler, Hartford Court and DuMol. These cool climate, usually hillside sites on the Sonoma Coast are cropped low, the wines are fermented in new French oak and bottled without fining or filtration. I am on Aubert`s mailing list, and while I never seem to have enough wines to age very long, a recent tasting of his 2004s revealed them to still be in splendid condition. With a few noteworthy exceptions, aging California Chardonnay beyond a decade is a fool`s game, but certain older Marcassin and Mt. Eden Chardonnays have impressively stood the test of time. I am sure Aubert`s would also, but who can defer their gratification that long?`
