2004 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $65)

SKU #1025724

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Ripe red fruits and minerals on the nose; like a Burgundy in its aromatic profile. Very fresh and elegant, with precise strawberry and redcurrant flavors, impressive focus and a long, juicy finish. This is absolutely delicious now but has the balance for cellaring." (Jan/Feb 07) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Silky, perfumy style, with raspberry and red plum fruit carried by fine-grained tannins and backed by a tangy mineral note on the long, stylish finish. Should put on weight. Drink now through 2022." (11/06) 91 points Robert Parker: "The 2004 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (16,000 bottles) is a sexy, open-knit style of wine for the Armeniers, with a deep ruby/purple color and a big, sweet, expansive nose of blackberry and black currants with some cherry liqueur, dried herbs, smoke, and licorice. The wine is delicious to say the least, but also elegant, pure, and well-balanced. It should drink nicely for a decade or more." (02/07) 14.5% abv.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
