International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

Pale yellow-green color. Subdued but pure nose hints at beeswax. Round, full and pristine, with impressively deep flavors of quince, ginger, spring flowers, wet stone and hazelnut. Today this seems much more accessible, with more obvious sweetness of fruit, than the 2001. Finishes very long and rich, with a honeyed ripeness. Aged in 100% new barrels, but has plenty of material to support the oak.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 201

A massive explosion of white flower, corn relish, orange rind, lemon butter and sea breeze-like characteristics jump from the glass of this light gold/greenish-hued 2002. Magnificent fruit, a full-bodied texture, and superb intensity as well as precision characterize this youthful, full-throttle Marcassin. It comes across like an exquisite Batard-Montrachet (although recent Batards I have tasted tend to be oxidized). The 2002 Marcassin has two decades of life remaining.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A rich, smoky, exotic style that serves up layers of ripe pineapple, mineral, citrus, tangerine and fig; for all its intensity and concentration, it's elegantly styled, ending with a creamy aftertaste. 325 cases made.
