The wine is aged in a combination of small barriques, larger demi-muids, and steel tanks. The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape tips the scales at 15.5ndash;16% alcohol, and was harvested between August 28 and September 15. A blend of 80% Grenache and the balance mostly Syrah with a tiny dollop of Cinsault and Mourvedre, there are 20,000 bottles of the 2003, which was cropped at a meager 20 hectoliters per hectare. Its deep ruby/plum color is followed by an expressive, sweet nose of raspberries, cherries, licorice, and flowers (violets or acacias?) Which jumps from the glass of this full-bodied, superbly-textured, pure 2003. The high level of glycerin as well as sweet tannin in the finish give it a certain accessibility, but my instincts suggest it will be even better with 2ndash;3 years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2017.
Smells ripe and jammy, with lots of cherry and plum-scented characteristics that come through on the palate. Big, firm and tannic; a rustic style that will require patience. Cellar through 1996.
...a remarkable Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has been bolstered by the inclusion of wine made from 50 to 90 year old vines. The wine reveals a dark ruby/purple color, and a huge nose of jammy, sweet black fruits and herbs. In the mouth, the sweetness, glycerin, high alcohol, and gorgeous extract levels make for a sumptuous drinking experience. The tannins are silky and the finish is formidable. It should evolve gracefully for 10-15 years.
A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2003 Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 750ml
Luxurious Drinks offers you: Wine - red - 2003 - Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape - France - Region: Rhône - Apellation: Chateauneuf-du-Pape - Grenache blend - 750 ml.
The blend of the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Cinsault. Aged primarily in tank and foudres, with a very small percentage in barrel (the Syrah), this wine has a dense ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of acacia flowers intermixed with road tar, blueberry, black raspberry, and licorice. The wine is smoothly textured, expressively aromatic, and more elegant and not as powerful as other vintages despite the relatively lofty alcohols that this vintage achieved. This wine should be delicious young and drink well for 12 or more years.
Although Chateauneuf du Pape gets all of the attention in the Southern Rhone valley, in neighboring Lirac many hidden gems can be found. This wonderful 2003 is the first vintage for Domaine de Marcoux in Lirac and includes all of the five major red varietals grown in the area; Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Carignan, and Syrah. And because the grapes in Lirac are grown in rocky soil similar to those in Chateauneuf du Pape the wines tend to share a certain ldquo;mineralityrdquo; in their fine, ripe tannins and shared flavor characteristics of kirsch, blackberry, and earthy, meaty notes.
