Starts out with a quiet intensity of ripe pears, apricot tart and spiced apples notes, growing exponentially to reveal a whole spectrum of savory/earthy nuances: marzipan, cashews, yeast extract, oolong tea, chalk dust and nutmeg. Full-bodied, the palate truly lets off the flavor fireworks, giving up loads of citrus, stone fruit, pears and savory flavors plus a racy backbone, finishing very long and very moreish.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.
Dense and multilayered. A real mouthfeel. Full-bodied. Exotic fruit. Phenolic and textured. Chewy.

The most gracious and lifted of Mark Aubert's Chardonnays. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint, chalk and white pepper give the wine lift and perfume. Delicate, understated and classy to the core, the Lauren has it all. The 2017 is a stunning wine. It's as simple as that. Don't miss it. (AG)
Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
Powerful toasty and crushed stone notes accent the focused flavors of Gala apple, nectarine and white berry. Dried tropical fruit details fill the rich and textured finish, with lemon drop hints.
