2008 Marcassin Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard

TASTING NOTE

Our friend visited with his family for a sip ‘n snack birthday month event.  Followed very nicely after 1999 Champagne Alfred Gratien Brut.

Golden, yellowish-grown.  The first sister was elegant on the eye.

Aromas of vibrant blend of citrus, burnt caramel and toasted almonds.  Very, very inviting on the nose…someone needs to make a perfume with that smell! The ultimate second sister!!!

Palate was buttery, vanilla cream with a hint too much acidity.  A bit too perky third sister, but we waited a little to ensure she acted appropriately.  Yes, we think this wine needs another year or two of cellaring before hitting on all cylinders. 97+ in the future!!!
