Aubert 2015 "Eastside" Chardonnay, Russian River (97-100 Pt Parker)

 

Robert Parker 97-100 Points: "The 2015 Chardonnay Eastside, from a vineyard owned by Ulises Valdez and planted with a suitcase clone from one of the Montrachet holdings in Burgundy, comes across with great ripeness (15.4% natural alcohol) compared to the 15.8% of the UV-SL. With loads of orange skin, buttered citrus, smoked hazelnuts and green apples, fabulous concentration and amazing minerality, this is another compelling Chardonnay from the genius of Mark Aubert that should drink well for a decade or more."

 

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes: "The 2015 Eastside Chardonnay is uncanny in its ability to represent the stony soils of its origin. This wine is like gravel candy to the Chardonnay lover’s sweet tooth. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Strong aromas of pungent minerals and dried stone fruit grab your attention. Flavors expand to lime zest, herb oils and green apple cider. The combination of minerality and acidity makes this long and lip-smacking. I fully expect this wine to age well for 15+ years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking."

 

Wine will be in stock mid-late February 2017
