1997 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 - 1997 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 96 Pts! I have never tasted a more compelling Chardonnay made in the New World and rarely have a tasted a white Burgundy such as this as Marcassin's 1997 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard. There are 200 cases of this wine which ranks among the finest dry whites to ever cross my palate. Aged in 100% new French oak this powerful 14.5% alcohol effort represents the pinnacle of perfection. Dazzling aromatics offer up leesy roasted nut coffee liquid slate minerals honeyed citrus and subtle toast scents. Extremely full-bodied with multiple layers of flavor and that liquid petroleum note this is a spectacular blazingly well-focused symmetrical yet enormous wine that should age nicely for a decade perhaps longer. It goes against everything I have learned in my wine career that something this perfect complex and rich could be produced from five year old vines. But the truth as always can be found in the bottle ... in vino veritas ... and then some. RP
