2010 Marcassin Pinot Noir - 98 PTS - WA

wa98"Not surprisingly, the finest wine of this trio is the 2010 Pinot Noir Marcassin Estate. Deep plum/ruby/purple-colored to the edge, it offers notes of boysenberries, mulberries and a hint of raspberries. The site's minerality is well-positioned in the full-bodied flavors which continue the blue fruit invasion, so to speak, but with more forest floor and composty notes, and a complex, northern Cote de Nuits Vosne-Romanee or Morey-St.-Denis personality expressed in the gorgeous fruit. The sweetness of the tannin, the finish of 40+ seconds, and the great intensity this wine exhibits make it another compelling Pinot Noir from these two reclusive geniuses. Drink it over the next decade or more. - Robert Parker"

2011 Marcassin Pinot Noir - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The 2011 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard has sweet berry fruit, roasted herbs, incense, a touch of background wood spice and foresty notes all present in this medium-bodied, slightly lighter style of Pinot Noir from Marcassin. This was a challenging vintage, but the wines turned out outstanding, and very Burgundian. The alcohol is 13.9%, which is one of their lowest sugar levels. The wine presents a very attractive, moderately intense perfume, good acidity and excellent precision. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. - Robert Parker"

2012 Marcassin Pinot Noir - 95+ PTS - WA

wa95"In 2012, a very large crop that was quite ripe produced a supple, sexy, fruit-forward style of Pinot Noir. The dense purple 2012 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard offers up broad, savory mushroom, forest floor, blackcurrant and Asian plum sauce notes and has full body, sweet tannin and good acidity. Drink this sumptuous beauty over the next decade or more. - Robert Parker"
