Chateauneuf du Pape Marcoux 92 Premier 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
