Domaine de Marcoux Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The outstanding 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah, and 3% Cinsault that achieved 16.5% natural alcohol) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color in addition to a sumptuous bouquet of black fruits, scorched earth, lavender, truffles, and licorice. The wine reveals the vintage’s gorgeous freshness and vibrancy as well as sensational concentration, and a tremendous finish. It can be drunk young or cellared for 15+ years...94" WA 10/09 "Ive said it before, and Ill say it again, this domaines 2007s are fantastic! This was the second time Ive been able to taste side by side, both the Vieilles Vignes and the traditional Cuvee, from both 07 and 06, and both times, the 07s seem fresher, more vibrant, and with better overall aromatics. In fact, this was the best showing Ive had for the straight Châteauneuf-du-Pape and it continues to show brilliant aromatics of raspberries, licorice, flowers and spice, full body, sweet, decadent fruit and a super long, silky finish. This is still available at a reasonable price...95" Rhone Report 08/10
