Critical Acclaim

"Edging toward perfection (not unusual for these wines) is the 2005 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate. White flowers, white currants, crushed rock, quince, lemon butter, nectarine are all present in this wine, which has exceptional minerality and always reminds me of a grand cru white Burgundy such as Chevalier-Montrachet or a Coche-Dury Mersault Perrieres because of its liquid stone and floral notes. The wine has a gorgeous backbone of acidity to buttress the concentrated, rich flavors. This is sensational Chardonnay that should age effortlessly for a decade or more. "
