Flirting with perfection is the 2014 Chardonnay Lauren Estate, from 16-year-old vines, which offers great extract, richness, and plenty of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and citrus oil. The wine, showing its concentration because of the drought year, should easily last 12-15 years. (RP)
The 2014 Chardonnay Lauren is a huge, incredibly complex and blockbuster styled Chardonnay that always seems to me to be a mix of a great Chablis and a Chevalier-Montrachet. And while it’s brought up in 100% new oak, it’s almost impossible to detect. This incredible wine offers loads of lemon oil, buttered citrus, honeysuckle and white flowers in a full-bodied, yet elegant, perfectly balanced package. It only gets better with air, give it a decant if drinking anytime soon. While I can’t keep my hands off of these and go through my allocation far too quickly, I’ve no doubt these will evolve gracefully.
The 2014 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is one of the most brilliant wines in this range. Subtle, nuanced yet also deep, the 2014 blossoms with time in the glass. As good as the Lauren is today, experience has taught me that a few years in bottle can be transformational. This is yet another captivating Chardonnay from Mark Aubert. (AG)
Sleek and graceful, offering rich, elegant flavors, with subtle shades of peach, nectarine, honeydew, tangerine and light oak. Impressive for the juicy aftertaste and lingering presence. (JL)
