    June 10, 2020 - Medium yellow. No amber. Really expressive. Great nose and fruit. A ringer for a grand cru white burg. Aged well.

    July 1, 2018 - This was huge, concentrated, but still had a elegant floral nose despite the scale of the palate. I got a little heat, but not too distracting. A unique style of chardonnay.

    a bit difficult to drink. More impressive than delicious?
    Still quite an experience. Not sure if this is getting better or more disjointed?

    November 13, 2017 - I seldom get to taste Marcassin at more than 10 years of age, primarily because they never last that long in my cellar. WHile the wine retains some of its oaky, vanilla accents, the freshness is more apparent. Full bodied, ripe and luscious, the smoke, thyme, lemon grass, apple and pear notes with crushed rock accents, really shine through.

    September 30, 2017 - Guys Night Part III (Jason's House): Pop and pour, shared the bottle with 5 others. This was completely different from a 2004 that we had a few months ago. Nice unctuous mouth-feel. There were hints of great complexity, mature and deep. It also was a bit alcoholic and slightly sherried I wouldn't say that it's premoxed, but it is starting to show its age. It really needed some acid.
