Aubert's CIX Vineyard Chardonnay 2016 is a heavenly Burgundian style with exceptional richness, depth and minerality - simply stunning aromatics.

Aubert was established by the husband and wife team Teresa and Mark Aubert in the late 1990s, and has made giant leaps since. Mark is a career winemaker, combining his love of farming, passion for growing grapes and obsession for detail, which are evident in his 98-100 point Parker Chardonnay. Meanwhile, Teresa runs the business side of the business, which includes managing the Aubert wine allocations, which, as you can imagine, are very strict!

"...beguiling in its complexity and singularity, offering up scents of smoked nuts, waxed lemons, crushed rocks and coriander seed with hints of crusty bread, honeysuckle, baked peaches and clover honey. Full-bodied, full-on creamy and densely laden with layers of citrus and savory flavors, it has just enough freshness and wonderful length..

"Mark Aubert continues to set the bar incredibly high for the world-class quality of his Burgundian-styled, remarkable Chardonnays, which come from relatively cool sites spread from Rutherford in Napa Valley to the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast. As I indicated last year, Aubert is at the top of his game, and it is hard to believe any Chardonnay winemaker in the world is turning out a half-dozen Chardonnays at this qualitative level year in and year out." Robert Parker
