"The 1993 Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay is the most backward and closed of the three 1993 Marcassin Chardonnay offerings. It possesses huge body, and extraordinary, chewy, rich, honeyed flavors that reveal a strong mineral component. While it is the most structured of Marcassin's 1993s, it is no sin to drink it now. It is capable of lasting 6-8 years. The three 1993 Marcassin Chardonnays are profoundly complex, rich, super-concentrated Chardonnays that are neither heavy nor flabby. Bottled without fining or filtration, they are all extraordinary examples of this varietal. I utilize nearly all of my allocation each year in blind tastings with Burgundy experts, placing the Marcassin wines in vinous confrontations with France's greatest Montrachets, Chevalier-Montrachets, Batard-Montrachets, and Corton-Charlemagnes. Most of the time the Marcassin wines run away with top honors from other tasters who are admitted Burgundy wine fanatics. There are no secrets to Marcassin's success. Low yields, a non-interventionist winemaking philosophy that eschews any type of processing in favor of wild yeasts, and no acidification, fining, or filtration combine in a magical manner to produce intense wines of razor sharp clarity and complexity." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Jun 29, 1995)
