External Reviews for Marcassin Chard Marcassin la Costa Wine Co
Previously recommended, but not tasting note given. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2004 Marcassin Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard 750ml
The Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard is often the quintessential Chardonnay of the New World. With respect to the 2004, high acids, a greenish hue (also apparent in the Three Sisters cuvee) to the light straw/gold color, and notes of quince, crushed rocks, white currants, and subtle hazelnut, tropical fruit, and white peach characteristics are found in this beautiful Chardonnay. There is a subtle underlying buttery character, but the minerality and acidity both jump forward. This white seems to have a tannic structure much like a red wine. Still incredibly young, it should hit its peak in 3-4 years, and last for 12-15. It is clearly becoming the most consistent, long-lived Chardonnay of California.
