1998 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 99 Pts!
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-Montrach---------------------et 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
