The Lauren Estate Chardonnay is a reminder that Sonoma Coast can inspire wines reminiscent of White Burgundy. Fabulously concentrated and layered with density and extract, the aromatics and mouth feel are profound. The aromas offer a dynamic array of lemon-lime, white peach cream and spiced apples. Site specific tones such as lemon grass, pecans, and flint give the wine an organic sense of place. The palate shows little restraint despite its delicate and elegant textures. The 2013 Lauren is naturally clear with green tints on the edge. The unique structure of our Chardonnay is focused with powerful length on the palate, and will allow this wine to age for 12+ years. The wine has a slight hazy clarity showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chardonnay Lauren Estate is made from 15-year-old vines from the old Wente and Mt. Eden clones of Chardonnay planted in Goldridge soils. This wine offers loads of nectarine, honeysuckle, liquefied rock, quince and white currants. The wine has incredible richness, no real evidence of any of the 100% new oak it is aged in, and a multi-dimensional, long finish. This compelling Chardonnay is still young and capable of lasting 10-15 years.
