Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape Pre Arrival 2012

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.

Opaque ruby. Sexy red berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas are complicated by a smoky nuance and a hint of zesty minerality.

Silky and precise, with outstanding finishing clarity and length.
