Marcassin is the wine produced by celebrated California cult winemaker Helen Turley and her husband, John Wetlaufer on the Sonoma Coast in California. The name, meaning “wild boar” is also the name of the 20-acre vineyard where the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes for her wines are grown. Two-thirds of the winery’s production is Pinot Noir. Production is limited to 2,500 to 3,000 cases a year, with the majority of the bottles sold only to exclusive mailing list members (there is an extensive wait list to receive them). The wines typically start at around $125 a bottle to the mailing list and sell for many more times that at auction. Until 2011, the wine itself was produced at Turley’s Martinelli winery in the Russian River Valley, but are now produced solely at Marcassin.  Read less

Edging toward perfection (not unusual for these wines) is the 2005 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate. White flowers, white currants, crushed rock, quince, lemon butter, nectarine are all present in this wine, which has exceptional minerality and always reminds me of a grand cru white Burgundy such as Chevalier-Montrachet or a Coche-Dury Mersault Perrieres because of its liquid stone and floral notes. The wine has a gorgeous backbone of acidity to buttress the concentrated, rich flavors. This is sensational Chardonnay that should age effortlessly for a decade or more.

High in acidity and broodingly backward is the 2005 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard. The high acids are easily balanced by profound levels of concentration. Guava, nectarine, orange blossom, and other citrus appear in the flavor profile, along with an ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
