99 points "The 2007 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate is a California version of a Corton-Charlemagne. The vineyard is planted with old Wente clones on steep, volcanic soils and this wine (which I reviewed last year just after bottling) continues to reveal staggering potential. It actually will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age. My first comment when tasting it was “great stuff.” The liqueur of minerality and the citrus blossom notes intermixed with hints of orange rind, white currant and unbuttered popcorn are followed by a dense, concentrated, bone dry white wine with fabulous fruit purity, a full-bodied texture and layer upon layer of richness and depth. The finish seems almost endless and the wine appears to be bursting at the seams trying to escape from its structural restraints. This prodigious Chardonnay should be hitting on all cylinders in 3-4 years and last for two decades or more (if you can defer your gratification that long). " Best 2014-2034

98 points "98 points Robert Parker: "The exquisite 2000 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard is a broad, gorgeously perfumed, light green/gold-colored effort revealing tremendous power as well as notes of hazelnuts intermixed with white peaches, citrus oils, and other exotic fruits. It has great depth, tremendous delineation, a firm underpinning of acidity, and a 50-second finish. This spectacular Chardonnay once again proves that this is one of northern California’s great Chardonnay (and Pinot Noir) vineyards. It should be decanted prior to service, and promises to be one of California’s longest lived Chardonnays." (12/03) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Balances moderately rich and ripe lemon, citrus, pear, subtle smoky hazelnut and nutmeg scents with an elegant, subtle mouthfeel. Perhaps most impressive is its understated core of flavors and how they build and echo on the finish. Drink now through 2007. 200 cases made." (04/05) "
