    August 17, 2014 - Just incredible. What else can be said. Dont think I have rated but one white wine higher than this. As good as it gets. Amazing purity and freshness. I've had this twice now and the rest will sit for a LONG time. This is very age worthy. But had to try a couple now. 95+ and could go higher.....

    July 20, 2014 - The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are slow. It smells like pineapple, lemon and chrysanthemum. It tastes like mineral. The body is full. The wine has polished texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity. Parker says Chardonnay of the Decade!

    May 22, 2014 - New World Dinner at the Capital Grille Tysons (Capital Grille, Tysons, VA): I am not a big fan of Marcassin but this is exceptional. Noticeable smoke, kinda crazy but reminds me smoked Ankimo/uni, really creamy butter, smoked fish, saline, mineral and lemon. Excellent concentration but remains balanced, mineral and fresh. The best Marcassin I have drunk.

    April 3, 2014 - Jostled in transit to dinner so was a little cloudly. Lovely chard showing no signs of age. Nose was appley, with toast, tropical fruit. Smooth and luscious in the mouth with layers of sweet fruit - while not flabby it was not as acidic as I expected. Expensive.
