1996 Marcassin Estate Chardonnay - 99 Pts!!

The just released 1996 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard boasts record setting levels of complexity richness individuality and ... let's not forget joy. I have had it over several meals with the finest wines I could find for comparison i.e. the Batard-Montrachets of Michel Niellon Montrachets of Amiot-Bonfils and Corton-Charlemagnes and Meursault-Perrieres of Coche-Dury among the finest white Burgundy producers.

At each tasting the 1996 Marcassin Vineyard Chardonnay dominated the other wines in terms of expression individuality richness purity symmetry and pleasure ... sort of like Mohammed Ali in his prime sparring with an assortment of middleweight contenders. It is an extraordinary wine that somehow manages to juxtapose complexity elegance and finesse with unbridled power richness and layers of flavor. The most frightening aspect is how Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer produce wines such as this year in and year out. It is a matter of well-placed hillside vineyards harvesting exceptionally ripe fruit letting the wine express itself in barrel and bottle without stripping or altering its inherent personality by technological razzle-dazzle manipulations. The 1996 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard should drink well for at least a decade. Bravo! RP
