Name Domaine De Marcoux Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2019 (ID# 3921)
Varietal Blend
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "Aromas of violet and fresh raspberry introduce this Grenache-dominant red. Sourced from biodynamically grown grapes cultivated on a cross section of terroir within Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it's ripe but pristine and concentrated, quivering with flavors of rich black-cherry and boysenberry preserves. A whisper of spice and smoke suggests the barest of oak influence. Delicious now, the wine should maintain peak." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"Rich and ripe but fresh and light on its feet, with a seductive, silky texture to the mix of cherry puree, raspberry reduction and mulled plum flavors. Shows anise, black tea and incense notes that lend a perfumed air all the way through the warm earth-tinged finish. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2023." (Wine Spectator) "Bright ruby. Vibrant, spice-accented aromas of raspberry and cherry liqueur, incense and pungent flowers are accompanied by a smoky mineral nuance that builds in the glass. Deep-pitched yet impressively lively as well, offering intense red and dark berry liqueur and floral pastille flavors that stain the palate and show superb clarity and minerally lift. Closes extremely long, focused and lively, with silky tannins framing the wine’s sweet fruit. This is about as good as a "basic" Châteauneuf gets." (Vinous) "The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape showed beautifully, with a ripe, classic, Provençal bouquet of black raspberry, strawberries, and darker berry fruits as well as spice, garrigue, and pepper. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, yet all about finesse and elegance, it’s overflowing with character and charm. It’s going to shine for 15 years with no issues." (Jeb Dunnuck)
