2007 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 99 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 99 RP - 2007 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 99 pts! The 2007 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate is a California version of a Corton-Charlemagne. The vineyard is planted with old Wente clones on steep, volcanic soils and this wine (which I reviewed last year just after bottling) continues to reveal staggering potential. It actually will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age. My first comment when tasting it was “great stuff.” The liqueur of minerality and the citrus blossom notes intermixed with hints of orange rind, white currant and unbuttered popcorn are followed by a dense, concentrated, bone dry white wine with fabulous fruit purity, a full-bodied texture and layer upon layer of richness and depth. The finish seems almost endless and the wine appears to be bursting at the seams trying to escape from its structural restraints. RP
