94 points "The 2010 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard comes across as implosive and structured. Today the wine is quite reticent, as it is showing just the barest hint of its potential. The 2010 Ritchie impresses for its power and energy. This tightly coiled Chardonnay needs another year or two in bottle to show the full breadth of its potential. These 36-year-old vines are the oldest Aubert works with. (94+)." Best 2012-2020

94 points "The 2009 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard offers up notes of lemon blossom, crushed rocks, orange marmalade, white currants and quince. This deep, full-bodied, rich wine with laser-like precision is more delicate and ethereal than the blockbuster 2008. (94-96)."

97 points "From Aubert’s oldest vines, the 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie is made from the 40-year-old Chardonnay clone called Old Wente. Candied citrus, wet rocks, Granny Smith apples, white peach and honeysuckle notes are found in this full-bodied, prodigious Chardonnay with crisp acidity buttressing the viscous, full-throttle style. All of these 2013s have at least a decade of aging potential." Best 2016-2025
