Performing even better than it did last year the 2004 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard reveals an extraordinary bouquet of leesy brioche hazelnuts orange blossoms lemon oil quince and wet stones. Full-bodied with huge long concentrated flavors it first tasted like a grand cru Chablis and next like a grand cru Batard-Montrachet. This is a fabulous wine boasting terrific acidity as well as a long finish. Given Marcassin's historic track record of Chardonnays lasting 10-15 years I would not be surprised to see this 2004 age like a top white Burgundy.

Pure subdued nose hints at lemon ginger spring flowers and flinty minerality. Then almost shockingly fat broad and rich in the mouth with elevated alcohol contributing to the impression of plumpness. Dry yet luscious with a honeyed flavor. Finishes with considerable breadth and power and more obvious structure than the Zio Tony. But this one really calls for a year or two of additional aging.
