The 2019 Lauren is a thrilling, elegant, textural wine. A breathtaking bouquet of orchard fruit oils, aromatic spice, lime leaves, and fresh hazelnut unfurls in the glass with accents of toasted sesame and pure soil tones. A dizzying array of aromas expand further on the palate with staining flavors of yellow nectarine, green tea, and notions of crushed chalk. A glycerin quality extends across the mid-palate and carries through the long and sophisticated finish. This wine has the vivacity and drive to drink young for a decade or more. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Lauren Vineyard (named after Mark Aubert's daughter) is the first vineyard Mark Aubert ever bought. It is composed of gravel mixed with Goldrich soils and was planted in 1999 to four different clones: two Old Wente clones, Mount Eden and Corton-Charlemagne.

The 2019 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is a blend of two Wente clones, Montrachet and Mt. Eden. That combination produces a wine of uncommon elegance. Texturally alone, the Lauren is so distinctive. Pear, lemon confit, chamomile, marzipan and dried flowers all grace the Lauren, a wine that is just off the chart. Bright saline notes punctuate the finish.
