2012 Aubert "Sugar Shack" Rutherford Chardonnay (1.5L)

SKU #1167614 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a 5-acre Rutherford vineyard planted with the Montrachet clone, the prodigious 2012 Chardonnay Sugar Shack Estate (400 cases) exhibits notes of liquid stones, tangerine oil, peach blossom and a hint of pineapples with staggering minerality. Full-bodied with sensational purity, texture and richness, it was hard to spit this one out. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers rich, deep, persistent flavors built around ripe apple, fig, honeysuckle and smoky oak notes that fill in the gaps on the finish. A new offering from Aubert. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the more explosive wines in the range, the 2012 Chardonnay Sugar Shack hits the palate with tons of depth and pure body. Readers who can put the wine aside for a few years should do so, as today the structure and intensity of the fruit are both incredibly intense. The style is rich, tropical, honeyed and voluptuous to the core. Sugar Shack emerges from a site in Rutherford, just outside St. Helena, planted by David Abreu with a Montrachet clone. This is the same wine that was labeled as Napa Valley in 2011. The vines are now seven years old. There is every reason to think the best lies ahead. (AG) 93+ Inner quote mark (2/2014)
