Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard 2007, 750mL (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: US
Appellation: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County

WA97
Rated 97 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard reveals superb minerality and acidity, a laser-like precision, a light green/straw color, a steely, full-bodied mouthfeel, and plenty of orange blossom, lemon oil, creme brulee, and honeysuckle notes. This powerhouse should drink well for a decade.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `In only a handful of years, Mark Aubert, who received impeccable training at Peter Michael winery, working under Helen Turley, as well as at Colgin and Bryant Family Vineyards, has produced mind-boggling wines under his own label. With the addition of the Hyde Vineyard cuvee, he now produces four Chardonnays as well as two Pinot Noirs. Additional selections should begin to emerge as Aubert is moving away from any consulting business to concentrate on his own winery. His 2008s are candidates for the wines of the vintage, no doubt because of the extraordinarily low yields (his smallest crop to date). This has given the wines an extra level of concentration, which is saying something given the levels of richness achieved in previous vintages. The 2007 Chardonnays confirm the greatness I predicted for them from barrel in 2008. While this was a small crop for Aubert, it was not nearly as tiny as 2008. Aubert prefers to work with the Calera clone of Pinot Noir, although his two vineyards include both the Calera and a suitcase clone from one of Burgundy`s most famous Vosne-Romanee vineyards.`
