One of the wines of the vintage, Marcoux’s 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is an elegant, ethereal version of this cuvee. More pure and delineated than the classic cuvee, it offers a gorgeous perfume of kirsch liqueur, seaweed wrapper, licorice, ground pepper and garrigue that flows to a medium to full-bodied, pure, elegant and seamless palate. Showing the freshness of the vintage, it is drinking at point, yet will easily continue to evolve for another decade or so. (JD)
Dark red. Incredibly fragrant nose offers intense scents of raspberry, blackberry and kirsch underscored by a vibrant mineral tone. Lush, creamy and very sweet, with strong red and dark fruit flavors, exotic spice accents and a smooth, velour-like texture. Whatever tannins this might have are completely absorbed by the deep, concentrated fruit. Finishes very sweet, with exceptional length and bright mineral lift. (JR)
Sisters Catherine Armenier and Sophie Estevenin have farmed their estate biodynamically since 1990, and produce their Vieilles Vignes from vines nearly 100 years old. The 2004 offers exotically spicy, plummy fruit that feels tense and energetic as it saturates every inch of the palate in its suave, silky grip. It's intense rather than weighty, finishing with great length and multidimensional aroma.
Very round and supple up front, with raspberry and fig fruit caressed by silky tannins. Long finish shows kirsch, mineral, graphite and dark chocolate hints. Really stretches out, with the structure becoming more evident as it tightens up in the glass. Needs cellaring to let it put on all its weight. Best from 2008 through 2024. (JM)
