Winemaker Notes

This extraordinary effort is unquestionably the "Chardonnay of the Vintage." In fact, it may be the "Chardonnay of the Decade."

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Utterly perfect, the 2008 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate is a dead-ringer for the 2007, but slightly richer and longer, as hard as that may be to believe. This extraordinary effort is unquestionably the "Chardonnay of the Vintage." In fact, it may be the "Chardonnay of the Decade." Brioche, nectarine, citrus and orange blossom notes intermixed with a liqueur of rocks, great acid, phenomenal concentration and staggering length result in a sublime Chardonnay that should drink well for 15+ years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A sweeping display of Chardonnay finesse, this is mature, with rich, expansive notes of fig, honeysuckle, roasted marshmallow and light toasty oak, turning creamy and delicate on the finish, with an aftertaste of anise. Drink now through 2016. 675 cases made.

Marcassin, California
Marcassin Winery Image

If you haven’t heard of Helen Turley, or tasted one of her wines, you’ve definitely not been paying close enough attention to the wines coming out of California in the last 10 years. She is arguably one of the most influential winemakers in the business, receiving critical acclaim for almost every wine she touches. Aside from her own boutique winery, Marcassin, which she runs with husband John Wetlaufer, Helen has been the consulting winemaker for some of the best wineries in the country – Colgin, Bryant Family, Martinelli – just to name a few.

Marcassin (french for 'young wild boar') is a VERY small winery – in fact it’s so small that the wines have actually been made at the Martinelli winery in Russian River Valley. Located on the Sonoma Coast, the Marcassin vineyard is planted to 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is about 10 acres in size. Fruit for the other vineyard designated wines is sourced from other neighboring vineyards. Marcassin will always be a small winery; John & Helen feel the perfect size is 100 barrels, enough for 2,500 cases.

Helen’s winemaking philosophy is simple: great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time and natural yeast. She approaches every project with these same priorities.
