2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine de Marcoux

Average critic rating : 90.0 points



A wine that performed better from barrel than bottle, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is still an outstanding effort. Made from tiny yields and a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah and 3% Cinsault, it exhibits classy black cherry, damp underbrush, truffle and hints of herbs in a medium-bodied, fresh and seamless profile. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years.||There are few wines I’d rather drink than a great vintage of Domaine de Marcoux’s Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, and this cuvee is once again one of the top wines in 2012. Located in the northern portion of the appellation, this impeccable estate is managed by sisters Sophie and Catherine Armenier, and they produce two red Châteauneuf du Papes (the traditional cuvee and the Vieilles Vignes), a superb Côtes du Rhône and a high quality Lirac, which unfortunately, I wasn't able to taste for this report. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
