Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Marcoux 95 Premier 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Seamless, layered and textured, with overflowing Grenache generosity, this full-bodied effort gives up plenty of pure raspberry, black raspberry, violets and tinges of licorice on the nose and palate. As with the 2011, it should be reasonably approachable on release, yet have 15+ years or more of longevity...95-97" WA 10/13 "Dark purple. Heady, complex scents of red and dark berry preserves, Asian spices, cola and smoky minerals. Densely packed but lively, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors braced by a hint of blood orange. Shows terrific power and focus on the finish, which features silky tannins and an exotic floral nuance. One of the stars of the vintage, for sure...94-96" IWC 01/14
