SKU: 53545-2010-750-3A
  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Combines richness with elegance and detail, offering a core of green apple, lime- and lemon-laced citrus flavors, with touches of honey, spice and graphite. Lemon meringue notes emerge on the finish.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 99

    With a slightly smokier edge to the honeysuckle, poached pear, pineapple and caramelized citrus notes, the 2010 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard hits the palate with a full-bodied, thunderous affect of fruit, glycerin and acidity. The wine reveals some smoke in the aromatics, but little, if any, in the flavor profile. Full-bodied, lovely, and again, close to perfection (as so often these wines are), this is a beauty to drink over the next decade or more.

    Firing on all cylinders but no rush to drink up. Sadly my last bottle. Best California Chardonnay produced year in and year out.

    Very rich, just enough acidity. Some nice toast/smoke notes on the nose. still very full but I wouldn't keep it any longer. Drink up as it is showing beautifully now

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."
