The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard is a beauty, with an incredible sense of minerality and reduction in its stone fruits, liquid rock, flower oil, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. This brilliant effort is deep, rich, and powerful, yet has a rare sense of tension and focus, with thrilling purity, full-bodied power, and blockbuster length. While it's almost impossible to find, it's the real deal. Give bottles 2-3 years of bottle age, and it's going to keep for over a decade. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck. Tasting date: December 13, 2018. Drinking window: 2018-2033.

The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard, which will probably be released in a few months, displays great minerality, notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pear, and white flowers as well as a touch of quince. A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable. When you consider that they use 100% new French oak and 100% heavy toast for both their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it is remarkable how little oak appears in these wines. This wine should age well for 10-15 years, as most of the Marcassin Estate Chardonnays have done to date. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr. Issue date March 3, 2016. Drinking window: 2016-2031.
