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.

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.

Amazing flavors, rich, yet nearly weightless and not cloying in any way.

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."
