International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($90) Quinine, peach, clove and liquid stone on the nose, complicated by a suggestion of exotic fruits. Rich, round, dense and suave; highly concentrated but extremely subtle. The deepest of these 2001s, with minerals and spices emerging on the very long finish, which shows some oak notes of vanilla and grilled nuts. Wetlaufer describes the 2001s-pinots as well as chardonnays-as drier, less open and higher in alcohol than the Marcassin 2002s, and they are indeed less showy today.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 201

Probably the biggest sleeper vintage in the tasting (I had not expected this wine to perform so well), I have always had a preference for the 2002, but in this tasting, the 2001 revealed abundant notes of candied oranges, brioche, hazelnuts, caramelized lemon and hints of pineapple and mandarin. With a youthful color, huge body and enormous richness and length, this multidimensional, young wine has 10-15 years ahead of it. It is a remarkable achievement.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Elegantly styled, with a tight, rich beam of ripe, buttery pear, fig and apricot flavors shaded by a touch of cedary oak with an apple blossom aroma. Tightens up on the finish, where a touch of chalk and mineral fold in. 225 cases made.
