2001 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 100 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 100 RP - The potentially perfect 2001 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard 250 cases is pure liquid stones with a liqueur-like intensity that reminds me of a Montrachet or Meursault-Perrieres. It is dense and full-bodied with huge notes of tangerine skin intermixed with white peaches acacia flowers and that ever-dominating gun flint and candied mineral character this prodigious offering should age effortlessly for a decade. From one of the New World's true grand cru vineyards and always a candidate for Chardonnay of the vintage since its debut release in 1996 the 2001 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard boasts a liqueur of rocks characteristic in its big leesy honeysuckle-scented nose along with buttery caramelized citrus a hint of tropical fruit huge ripe notes of nectarines smoke and minerals.
