Ratings & Tasting Notes:
96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons, like most of Aubert’s Chardonnays, always seems to have a greenish hue to its light straw/gold color. This wine comes from one of the coldest vineyards in the Aubert portfolio. The 2013 does offer some delicate pineapple, damp earth and wet stones as well as a touch of white currants and quince. This beautifully fruited wine is medium to full-bodied, has great acidity, and should continue to drink well for at least another decade. (RP) (12/2015)
95 points Vinous
The 2013 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons is gorgeous. Lemon curd, white flowers, white pepper and mint lift from the glass. Effortless, gracious and lifted in the glass, the 2013 impresses for its brightness and tension, but there is plenty of the trademark Aubert richness in the glass. The Hyde finishes with notable energy and subtlety. (AG) (1/2015)
93 points Wine Spectator
Brimming with rich, zesty flavors of nectarine, white peach, citrusy apple and quince, this stays on track, with a long, mouthwatering aftertaste. (JL)(6/2015)
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
