A wine that stood out for its complexity and intensity was the 2012 Chardonnay CIX Estate. Planted with the Reuling clone of Chardonnay, this vineyard is situated next to the vineyard from which Mark Aubert makes the Lauren Chardonnay. There are only 600 cases of this prodigious wine. The vines were planted in 2007, so this is only the fifth leaf, but, 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. Drink through 2026.
