Chateauneuf du Pape Marcoux 92 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"From a vintage with miniscule yields and the same blend as the 2011, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape, which was tasted out of barrel, offers a pretty, fresh and fragrant profile with gorgeous purity of fruit. Black raspberry, licorice and floral notes all emerge here, and it builds in richness and depth with time in the glass. It should be reasonably approachable on release and drink well for 10-12 years...92-94" WA 10/13 "Youthful purple. Lively aromas of black raspberry, violet pastille and white pepper. Sweet and vibrant on the palate, which offers deeply pitched blackberry and blueberry flavors and a touch of spicecake. Distinctly fresh, focused and lively, with strong finishing thrust, soft tannins and lingering red fruit character...91-93" IWC 01/14

Bright purple. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, candied flowers and spicecake, with a mineral overtone. Juicy, focused and pure, offering tangy red and dark berry flavors that turn spicier with air. Finishes with impressive energy and cut, ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape was fashioned from yields of 12 hectoliters per hectare and is a blend of 74% Grenache, 14% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah and 3% Cinsault aged primarily in cement tanks with one-third spending time in truncated wood foudres. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, stunning concentration and lots of raspberry, cassis, blueberry and acacia flower notes. With plenty of glycerin, sweet tannin, a long, heady finish and 15%+ alcohol, it should evolve effortlessly for 15 or more years.

Bright purple. High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, candied flowers and spicecake, with a mineral overtone. Juicy, focused and pure, offering tangy red and dark berry flavors that turn spicier with air. Finishes with impressive energy and cut, leaving floral and spice notes behind.

Certainly up there with, and possibly eclipsing the '09, the 2010 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape, tasted from multiple lots, should be a fuller, richer version of the '09 with more dark fruits, garrigue, and floral characteristics, full body,...

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (74% Grenache, 14% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah and 3% Cinsault aged two-thirds in cement tanks and one-third in wood foudres) has a dense ruby/purple color, a sweet nose of floral-infused blueberry liqueur, a striking minerality, impressive concentration, and a solid, dense core of fruit and glycerin. This is a classic and potentially long-lived Marcoux that should drink well for 15 or more years.
