This represents the best of what the Laughlin Vineyard has to offer. The 2008 presents many layers of aromas featuring striking mineral notes of river stone, lighter essences of honeysuckle and lycee fruit, as well as ripe notes of melon and pear juice. A rich and an expressive statement on the palate, it nicely maintains the vibrant mouthfeel of a classic Russian River Valley Chardonnay.

Wine AdvocateAnother brilliant white, the light gold-colored 2008 Chardonnay L'Angevin Laughlin Family Vineyard sees a similar upbringing and the result is abundant tropical fruit, honeysuckle, poached pear and mango notes intertwined with a hint of creme brulee. Russian River-like in its exuberance and exoticism, this full-bodied, in-your-face style of Chardonnay can be consumed over the next 2-3 years.

Wine SpectatorSlow to unfold, with subtle, rich layers of honeydew melon, honeysuckle, fig and melon flavors that are medium-bodied. Ends with a supple touch of butterscotch that builds on the palate. Drink now through 2014. 400 cases made.
