Hey, say what you want but this was super tasty and really really fun to drink. The price, though, is not fun, I'll concede to that.

Full 2 hr decant, still needed another 2 hours in glass to r ache it’s potential. This is as good as Chardonnay gets

Really nice bottle that improved considerably over time so I would recommend a decant. My first Marcassin and had notes of lemon curd and tropical fruits.

Beautiful wine. Tons of fruit but not over powering.

Drink now. The 2011s are ready to go... Still plenty of fruit, hazelnut, white flowers, but acidity is softening. Delicious.

Took a while for the high acid finish to burn off but once it did, boy was it good. This is an outstanding wine that is going to last for ages. Buttery smooth with just the right touch of oak.

Wow!... pineapple and apricots hit the nose... well balanced, with just the right amount of acidity. On the palate I can taste tangerines and crushed rocks. A bit drier than Aubert Chardonnays but like them, I cannot taste oak letting the fruit come forward. Long finish . This is the very first time I have tasted Marcassin and what I read and was told about this winemaker, is true. .... and the 2011 was a "challenging" year for Sonoma and Napa...if this is that good, I can't imagine how the other vintages be....
