1999 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 97 Pts!
Marcassin is truly a Cultwine with its incredibly rish, opulent Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines which are extremely difficult to obtain. Helen Turley's personal production winemaking philosophy is focused on quality and excellence always calling for, "great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time, and natural yeast."

 

The 20-acre estate vineyard on the Sonoma Coast produces only 100 barrels annually. None of the wines interact with fining, filtering, or cold stabilization and are routinely aged for five years before they're released. This is truly one of California's most highly acclaimed, rare treasure: Marcassin Estate. The CultWine rules always applies with Marcassin.........."Find it............Buy it............Drink it!"

Rating 97 RP - There will be approximately 225 cases of the 1999 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard. This wine from a vineyard planted on a steep rocky hillside with shallow top soil and meter by meter spacing comes close to a magical synthesis of Michel Niellon's Batard-Montrachet and Coche-Dury's Corton-Charlemagne blended with California's extraordinary ripeness and richness from low-yielding Chardonnay fruit.It is an unctuous full-bodied gorgeously delineated offering with an extraordinary perfume of liquid minerals interspersed with citrus oils honey and a steely smokiness. The compelling aromatics are matched by the extraordinary attack mid-palate and finish. This profound Chardonnay is California's most singular expression of this varietal. Moreover it will have an effortless evolution of 10-12+ years. RP
