2016 Aubert Chardonnay CIX Estate Vineyard  (Sonoma Coast) 97

This compelling Chardonnay is big, rich, luscious, full-bodied and intense. It's young, so, yes it's also still oaky. But once past all that vanilla and smoke, you find layers of ripe, juicy, sweet, lemon peels, flowers, assorted citrus and apples galore with a mouth-filling finish that sticks with you. 97 Points

2013 Aubert Chardonnay CIX Estate Vineyard  (Sonoma Coast) 98

Wow! There is such a beautiful purity to all the layers of crisp apple, sweet pear, citrus peel and tangerine. There is a sweetness that adds a tropical accent, which comes from the levels of ripeness in the fruit. The acidity is right there too, which keeps this fresh and invigorating. 98 Points

2012 Aubert Chardonnay Eastside Vineyard  (Russian River Valley) 98

This was spectacular! Fresh, balanced, harmonious and packed with the perfect amount of ripe, sweet, citrus, pears, apples and stone. Rich, but not too rich, the oak was in check and fruit had this great sense of purity that you seldom find. I wish I had more than 1 bottle remaining. 98 Points

Fat, rich, sweet, lush, round and packed with juicy, citrus fruits, pears, apples and a tropical note. Vanilla tones are present in the nose and on the palate, but there is more than enough ample layers of fruit to overcome the oak. This is big, concentrated, opulent, complex expression of California Chardonnay. 97 Points

2012 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons  (Carneros) 95

Fat, ripe, lush, juicy, sweet citrus fruits with a lot concentration of flavor and raw material. Dense, but still light on its feet, due to all the fresh acidity. At this stage of development, there is also a strong oak note to contend with, so if that is an issue, give it 3-5 years, which will help integrate the oak, and bring out more fresh, mineralistic character. 95 Points

Still oaky, with its vanilla bean profile, the past 12 months have added more notes of orange, lemon peel, lime and green apple components to the nose. Soft, silky and forward, this is drinking quite nice today. 93 Points

2010 Aubert Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard  (Sonoma Coast) 94

While this is lacking the level of richness and density found in the top vintages of Aubert Chardonnay, the wine presents a cloudy appearance, from the lack of fining and filtering. In the nose, ample scents of vanilla, lemon, flowers and tropical fruits are easy to find. The already open, elegant wine ends with fresh citrus flavors. 94 Points

2009 Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard  (Sonoma Coast) 93

Fresh and focused on ripe its citrus, orange and vanilla, the wine does not seem as forward as other bottles or recent vintages of Aubert Chardonnay. This is a good choice for tasters that find previous years too ripe or excessive. 93 Points

2007 Aubert Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard  (Sonoma Coast) 92

Lush, rich and round, with a nose of honeysuckle, vanilla, citrus and butterscotch, the wine provided a fat blast of sweet, oak and citrus. My feeling is, the wine has reached matured far too quickly as it tasted and looked older than its true age. 92 Points

Big, fat, rich, ripe, dense and still quite oaky. The fruit was sweet, ripe and in full force, but at this stage of the game, I was hoping the oak would have been a little more restrained. There was a touch of heat, not overbearing, but it was sensed in the 15.8 % finish. 93 Points
