Aubert's CIX Vineyard Chardonnay 2012 was rated a near perfect 99 points by Robert Parker.

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!

“…wow, what a Chardonnay. Copious notes of pineapple, mango and guava along with wet stone, caramelized citrus, tangerine and orange marmalade characteristics are followed by a wine with a full-bodied mouthfeel as well as remarkable purity, texture and intensity. One of the most individualistic and greatest Chardonnays I have ever tasted.

“Mark Aubert is one of the contenders for California’s finest practitioner of Burgundian-styled, yet classic, California Chardonnays. His offerings are all made like grand cru Burgundies with full malolactic, the use of French oak and lees stirring, but the purity of fruit, the textural dimensions, and the stunning singularity of these Chardonnays can only be matched by a handful of other Chardonnay producers in the world. He’s that good.”
