Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

A light gold color with a greenish hue is followed by notes of tangerine, lanolin, orange rind, lemon butter and wet rocks in this ripe, youthful, full-bodied, zesty Chardonnay. Much younger than the 1997, but neither as complex nor profound as the 1998 or 1996, it should provide delicious drinking for another 10+ years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

Ultra rich and creamy, with layers of ripe, opulent fig, apricot, lemon, anise, mineral and hazelnut, all tightly wound in a focused style, finishing with a long, rich, luxurious aftertaste that reveals time and again a wonderful depth of complexity. 300 cases made.

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."
