    October 17, 2014 - An amazing chardonnay. Hints of smokiness (smoked salmon as the other reviewer suggests?) then as it opened everything you would want from a great one. Great nose, tropical fruits, acidity, long finish. This takes me back to the first Chalone I had in 1980.

    September 23, 2014 - Chilled for a couple of hours but not taken through the careful Marcassin protocol to clarify the wine. Initially, huge but quite tight. Over an hour or two this blossomed and just kept getting better with a hugh tropical fruit nose, balancing acidity, and a finish that went on forever. Amazing wine and a benchmark even in comparison to other Marcassin - one comment: Corton Charlemagne on steroids...

    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!
