Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard 2009, 750mL (WA96-99, WS95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County

WA96-99, WS95
Rated 96-99 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. Another blockbuster, the 2009 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is slightly less dense and lower in alcohol than the 2008. Its straw/green color is followed by crisp aromas of apple butter, lemon oil, orange blossoms, brioche and a subtle hint of smoke. The remarkable characteristic in all these Chardonnays is how little influence their 100% new French oak aging has had in their aromatic and flavor profiles. This 2009 should drink well for 7-8 years.` -- 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?`
