The 2020 UV-SL is an alluring elixir of citrus preserves, candle wax, white nectarine, and bergamot tea accented with the essence of seashore. With air, the deep and layered core reveals seductive stone fruit flavors punctuated by a white flower note. Opulent and textural across the palate, the wine finishes with a persistent display of green apple tart, lemon sorbet, and toasted almonds. This a fabulous wine to drink now or enjoy over the next decade. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Not since Robert Parker himself reviewed this wine have vintages of it scored in this vicinity. When viewed in isolation, the 2020 Chardonnay UV-SL is a thrilling wine; only in the rarified air of Aubert's range could a 94-point rating be considered disappointing. It's more linear and direct than the opulent, flamboyant 2021, with pronounced notes of crushed stone framing lime zest and white peaches. Full-bodied yet zesty, clean and refreshing, it's a laser beam of bright fruit, seemingly without the typical Aubert fleshy curvaceousness. Some drinkers may even prefer it for that stylistic leaning.

The 2020 Chardonnay UV-SL Vineyard is bright and nicely focused, with terrific energy driving the citrus flavors. There is a bit of edginess at the moment. It is hard to know how and if that will resolve, but I think it is worth noting the hardness at present.
