($90; 15.8% with a pH of 3.3; Aubert owns this seven-acre planting of Wente clones) Bright yellow. Knockout nose combines underripe pineapple, lemon drop, apple, pear, crushed stone, spices and minerals, plus a whiff of goat cheese that reminded me of a Burgundy from pure calcaire Supersweet and rich but with lovely harmonious acidity giving cut and verve to the penetrating flavors of nectarine, pear and dried candied fruits. Wonderfully tactile and vibrant chardonnay with superb persistence and finishing perfume. Here's a wine that would do major damage as a ringer in a flight of Burgundy grand crus.

The most flamboyant wine at present is the 2007 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard. It reveals more tropical fruit, pineapple, orange marmalade, lemon blossom, creme brulee, and white peach notes as well as superb acidity, and a full-bodied texture as well as mouthfeel. It, too, will age well for a decade.

Rich, smoky oak and creamy fig and melon flavors fold together nicely in this full-bodied beauty. Focused, complex and layered, ending with a long, elegant aftertaste.

About This Producer


Mark Aubert's four Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays - Lauren, Reuling, Quarry and Ritchie - have risen to cult status at a dizzying speed. 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 Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, to his time at Colgin and Bryant Family. His eponymous wines are exemplary renditions of Chardonnay, replete with the rich bounty of the terroirs from which he sources the fruit. At the same time, they reflect his adept oenological hand, and maintain a focused balance of flavor and purity.

Aubert also makes several Pinot Noirs sourced from the Sonoma Coast as well as a "right-bank" Bordeaux style blend from Napa's Howell Mountain.
