2016 Domaine de Marcoux Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1340504

Our Rhône buyer Keith Mabry says he'd put Marcoux in his top five estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of the first producers in the region to be certified Biodynamic, their incredible attention to detail and promise to the landscape is translated in the wines. Making only two red cuvées from their 18 hectares keeps the wines focused. You essentially have great wine and extraordinary wine here--and Marcoux's Cotes du Rhone is from dedicated vineyards following all the same Biodynamic principals they use for the Chateauneuf, so it is no mere declassified or second wine. This is serious Côtes du Rhône that ages beautifully but is also out-of-the-gate charming.

The 2015 Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape was my favorite of the season, and I was super excited to see the Cotes-du-Rhone arrive in the warehouse. It’s good. I mean, really, really good. As you creep out of $10-15 Cotes-du-Rhones into the $15-25 price point, you tend to see these wines just push harder on bigger, fatter, and richer. The Marcoux takes a defiant stance. It shows lifted and elegant red fruits with agile acid and exceptional balance. With gentle weight, but exceptional intensity, this wine has wonderful character, is expertly executed, and a total standout in the Cotes-du-Rhone category.

If you're a fan of Marcoux then you are definitely in for a treat with the 2016 Marcoux Cotes du Rhone. This wine starts off with an intoxicating nose of red licorice and candied red raspberries and then deftly pivots to fresh flower and earth notes. There's a distinctly Burgundian feel here with high-toned red fruits, remarkable balance and harmony and an elegance rarely found in a Cotes du Rhone. The wine finish with impressive purity and freshness and it lingers ever so slightly on the delightful finish. This is a must buy for any wine lover who is a fan of Grenache done the right way.
Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025

Domaine De Marcoux is slowly turning into one of my favorite Southern Rhone producers, and their 2016 Cotes Du Rhone is an outstanding Southern Rhone blend. Mildly zesty, and subtle flavors of strawberry twizzlers on the palate, this wine delivers a good mouthfeel, mild tannins, and great structure. Dinner party wine for sure.

Marcoux was my winery of the year last year for their incredible Chateauneuf releases. The 2015s were expressive, classic and layered with so much potential that they will surely deliver the goods over the next two decades. The 2016 vintage is as equally impressive (and maybe ultimately longer living). The wines show a level of depth that goes beyond simple hedonism. The basic or entry level wines from producers like Marcoux are always the great bellwether for exciting vintages because when the starter wines show this great, you know the high-end stuff will be legendary. Marcoux's Cotes du Rhone is from dedicated vineyards following all the same bio-dynamic principals they use for the Chateauneuf, so it is no mere declassified or second wine. This is serious Cotes du Rhone that ages beautifully but is also out of the gate charming. Lush strawberry, dried tobacco and potpourri permeate the glass and sweet fruit persists on the palate. So before the hype begins, drink this wine and be ahead of the curve and know what we know...2016 is great from top to bottom and Marcoux is on track to be my Winery of the Year two years running.

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.
