Aubert Chardonnay Eastside Vineyard Russian River Valley 2022  - First Bottle


97-99 The Wine Independent - Lisa Perrotti-Brown -
The 2022 Eastside Chardonnay was tasted as a barrel sample. Notes of chalk and crushed rocks open out to a core of ripe pears, yellow apples, and white pepper plus a hint of marzipan. The full-bodied palate has super tension with a silky texture framing the tight-knit apple and pear layers, finishing long and chalky. This comes from a warmer site, in Russian River, usually the second to be picked (after Sugar Shack). It is planted to the Montrachet clone on very rocky, gravelly soils, where the vines really struggle. Sometimes the pH comes in at 3.15 here, which is very low for the level of ripeness. Around 1,000 cases will be made.
