Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2015
90-92 WA The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape has terrific richness and medium to full-bodied weight, with ample notes of strawberries, kirsch, garrigue and dried flowers. Luxuriously textured, with sweet tannin, this beauty will have two decades of longevity.
Without a doubt one of my favorite estates, as well as a reference point for Châteauneuf du Pape, Domaine de Marcoux is located in the northern part of the appellation and is run with incredible talent, passion and insight by Sophie and Catherine Armenier. They produce a single white wine and up to three red cuvées: the base Châteauneuf du Pape, their old vines Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes cuvée and a terrific Côtes du Rhône.
