Pale yellow-green. Knockout nose combines stone fruits, minerals, fresh herbs, honey, flowers, grilled nuts and earth. Round and lush yet racy and light on its feet, with compelling flavors of pineapple, grapefruit and crushed stone. A huge but classy wine with considerable finesse. Wonderfully rich yet subtle on the back end, where it stains the palate with fruits, minerals and soil tones.

The 2004 reveals the shortest, most abrupt finish of any wine in this vertical. Still young and medium to full-bodied, its notes of white peaches, crushed rocks, mandarin, corn and honeysuckle remind me of Coche-Dury's Corton-Charlemagne. It is a lovely wine, although it is more narrowly constructed than the greatest vintages of Marcassin Estate.

Wine Spectator | 94

Weaves together a complex web of mature pear, fig and golden raisin, with mineral and hints of smoke and anise. Elegant, stylish, mature and focused. Medium- to full-bodied, ending with a subtle, delicate Meursault-like flintiness.

Light gold. Big tropical fruits fill the air and the glass. Medium finish. Not as complex as other Marcassins. Might be in a half dumb stage

About This Producer


One of the most influential mavens of modern California winemaking, Helen Turley creates in Marcassin wines that are among the most sought-after in California. Though the wines are made following a traditionalist Burgundian style, they are unique, complex representations of California Pinot and Chardonnay. Turley's straightforward winemaking philosophy is, "...great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time and natural yeast."
