2007 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1050263 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The finest traditional cuvee ever made at this estate is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape, which is a classic blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah and 3% Cinsault that was harvested from the 7th to the 17th of September. Deeper, richer and more concentrated than the 2009, it offers classic notes of framboise, kirsch, black cherries, garrigue and incense in a full-bodied, multi-dimensional and layered style that just begs to be drunk. Possessing both power and elegance, it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Vieilles Vignes cuvee and will drink nicely for another decade. (JD)  (10/2016)

 Sexy, expressive scents of black raspberry, star anise, lavender and smoky minerals. Lively red and dark berry flavors are given a refreshingly bitter edge by a note of cherry skin, turning deeper and spicier with air. The finish is broad, sappy and impressively powerful, leaving sweet red and dark berry compote notes behind. This is drinking surprisingly well for such a young wine but it also has the depth to repay patience.  (1/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe and winey, with a solid core of mulled currant, crushed raspberry and bramble notes laced with hints of ganache, incense and black tea. The finish is long, solid and authoritative. Should blossom in the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2020.  (11/2009)

Jancis Robinson

 Opened for 36 hours. Savoury, sweet nose with real roses and gentle texture. Racy and rich. Really strongly Grenache. Winemaker Sophie Armenier’s easiest vintage. 17.5/20  (11/2015)

One of my favorite Chateauneuf-du-Papes from the 2007 vintage, this offering from Domaine Marcoux is the definition of style and grace. Displaying elegant red berry fruit with notes of anise, lavender, and earth, it possesses firm structure and great acidity. Although showing well now, it will only get better with a bit of bottle age.

The Marcoux has a remarkably elegance to it. Lavender, spices, creme de cassis, truffles. I poured it in our last public tasting, and after decanting, it was just amazing, a fine wine indeed!

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.
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.
