A staggering Chardonnay that's still an infant, the light yellow/green/gold 2007 offers up notes of unbuttered popcorn, orange liqueur, lemon butter, quince and crushed rocks. It possesses terrific underlying acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a youthfulness and freshness that suggest this wine has two decades of life ahead of it. This majestic Chardonnay seems more French than Californian, but again, this reflects the significance of the labor of these two overachieving, push-the-envelope visionaries. What California viticulture and high-class, minimalist winemaking can achieve is exhibited in bold fashion by this 2007. It will hit its prime in 5-7 years, and appears to be a replay of the 2002 stylistically as well as for its overall potential.

This white moves gracefully from primary flavors of peach and citrus to a broader range of charred oak, mineral, and even a scent of butterscotch. Smooth, deep and rich, the attractive charred oak quality lingers, as this reverberates on the finish.

Bright clear yellow. Big nose of toasted oak, citrus and nuts. Potent and concentrated flavours. At first, piercing lemon and lime, juicy and lushous. After about 90 minutes, some oak blew off and there was a crisp minerality. Just as good, day two. Has more life, not peaked yet.

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."
