Utterly profound, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (16.7% natural alcohol) is a blockbuster. Full-bodied with great intensity, superb richness, and tremendous floral, truffle, meaty, raspberry, and blackberry-scented aromas, this wine, which comes from three well-known parcels in Chateauneuf du Pape (La Crau, Gallimards, and Esquirons) exhibits high tannin and good acidity, but the massive fruit and richness from these old vines dominate the wine’s personality. Although it is tasting profound at present, shrewd buyers will give it 4–5 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following two decades. This brilliant estate in the northern sector of Chateaunef du Pape is admirably run by Sophie and Catherine Armenier.

Lush and inviting, with mocha, raspberry, fruitcake and incense notes that run along a rich, velvety texture. The long, structured finish is really ripe and well-rounded, and should gain further depth with cellaring. Best from 2008 through 2030.

Marcouxandrsquo;s stunningly rich Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is always one of the appellationandrsquo;s top ten or twelve wines. Aged almost entirely in tank, the wine carries a remarkably high alcohol in 2005 (16.7%), which is even higher than the 2003 (16.3%). The overall impression is one of incredible purity and freshness, so hereandrsquo;s where alcohol percentage numbers, and especially a high one such as this, have to be discounted. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of flowers, sweet licorice, blackberry and raspberry liqueur as well as kirsch and black truffle. This wine comes totally from three parcels from La Crau, Gallimardes, and Esquirons, and has a tendency to age fabulously well for 15 or more years. This is a great wine for the vintage, and certainly one of the most accomplished efforts. Given the freshness, acidity, tannin, and power of the wine, it will be drinkable young but certainly last.
