2007 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, USA


Nestled in the heart of California's Sonoma Coast, the 2007 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay is a remarkable testament to the fusion of tradition and innovation. Crafted by the esteemed Marcassin Vineyard, this vintage invites you to explore a rich history, exceptional varietals, and meticulous production attributes that set it apart from the rest.

A Glimpse into History
Marcassin Vineyard, founded by Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer, has a legacy steeped in winemaking excellence. The 2007 vintage is a chapter in this illustrious journey, reflecting their unwavering commitment to producing outstanding Chardonnay.

The Essence of Varietals
At the core of this wine lies the noble Chardonnay grape, but what truly distinguishes it is the unique blend of clones and vineyard sites.

Production Excellence
The creation of the 2007 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay is a meticulous and labor-intensive process that revolves around preserving the grape's natural beauty.

Grapes are hand-harvested to ensure only the finest fruit makes it to the winery. A gentle whole-cluster pressing and barrel fermentation process allow for the expression of the varietal's full potential.

Aging takes place in carefully selected French oak barrels, where the wine matures gracefully, gaining depth and complexity.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

(Rating 99+) 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. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date June, 2012. Drinking window: N/A.
