98-100The Wine Advocate

...incredibly intense grapefruit essence, lemon peel & green apple notes with touches of nutmeg, fresh ginger, lightly browned toast, marzipan & smoky meat... refreshing acid framing complex citrus & spice layers, finishing long and savory.

97Vinous / IWC

A thrilling wine... interplay of creamy fruit, acid and structure is utterly captivating. Medium in body, the Lauren's a wine of impeccable balance & understated class that makes its case more with finesse & pure power... In a word: superb.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
