2009 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1075073 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Just a touch darker in color than the traditional cuvee, the blockbuster 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a big, full-bodied and concentrated beauty that's overflowing with Provencal notes of cured meats, garrigue, licorice, black cherries and crushed rock. Thick and unctuous on the palate, it has put on weight since release, and the tannin is also sweeter and more polished, all suggesting it will have a long life. This is a gorgeous Chateauneuf du Pape! 97+ Points (JD)  (10/2016)

96 points Wine Spectator

 Offers a deep, dark well of lush plum cake, hoisin sauce, roasted fig and cassis notes that seems to power on endlessly, while roasted mesquite, iron and incense fill in the background. Hefty but remarkably rounded, with a long, charcoal- and black tea-filled finish. Built to be one of the longer-lived wines of the vintage. Best from 2014 through 2030. (JM)  (2/2012)

94 points Vinous

 Opaque ruby. Highly fragrant aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote, lavender oil and Indian spices. Densely packed, focused and juicy, with intense red and dark berry flavors given spine and lift by zesty acidity. Shows serious intensity and finishes with outstanding clarity and floral persistence. (JR)  (1/2012)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
