Wine Advocate | Rating: 100A touch closed and youthfully shy to begin, the 2015 Chardonnay Lauren Estate soon powers up to reveal intense grapefruit, citrus peel, yuzu and honeyed pear notes over suggestions of crushed stones, struck match, baking bread and lemongrass. The palate is fine, fresh, elegant and incredibly layered, with the tightly wound layers offering glimpses at incredible depth, finishing long and minerally. Consider holding on to this one for another couple of years and drinking it over the next 12+.Drink Dates: 2018-2030Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Rich and creamy, elegant and refined, with a complex mix of fig-tinged citrus, green apple, honeydew, ginger cookie and spicy oak flavors. Ends with a touch of pithy citrus skin and excellent length.Drink Dates: 2017-2020Author: James Laube
Vinous | Rating: 97The 2015 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is a classic Aubert Chardonnay built on plush texture and a multidimensional personality of pure class. Dried pear, baked apple, dried flowers, mint and white pepper give the wine its aromatic top notes, but there is plenty of depth underpinning it all.Drink Dates: 2020-2025Author: Antonio Galloni
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.
