    A superstar at our recent Saturday Rhone tasting, where it more than held court with wines double in price. No surprise really, as this bottle of Marcoux was cultivated and raised under the careful tutelage of Sophie Armenier and her sister Catherine, whose family roots, as one of the first inhabitants in Chateauneuf, extend back to the 10th century. Aged for the most part in concrete, with a specific regimen of small oak barrels for the Syrah and Mourvedre, this cuvee mirrors the innate quality of the 2015 Rhone vintage, with gorgeous aromatics and a mélange of alluring red fruits, floral elements, suave spice, and refined tannins…more than the sum of its parts, and a true classic in the making.
    Top Value!

    This was a standout wine for me at our last Rhone staff tasting. The concrete aging contributes a lovely mineral element that's well integrated with the bold fruit, herb and dried flowers. The balance of this wine is impeccable, and with some time in the cellar, I know this will get even better.

    Lovely red fruit, fragrant flowers, and just a beauty to drink. Although this has an age-worthy presence about it, it's wonderful right now. I can't think of a better CdP anywhere near this price range that I would want to take home. A great value!

    The CDP earned an easy "A" on my tasting score sheet: classic profile and perfect structure. Although still relatively young, all of the elements (fruit flavors and aromas, tannin, alcohol, and acid) are super well blended and integrated. Classic CDP spiciness, soft and approachable tannins, and great depth to the core fruit flavors all contribute to how much the entire staff loved this bottle. And the price; that's a bonus. Stock up on these for the fall/winter!

    Absolutely lovely. I enjoyed its brooding berry fruit, herbs and smoke, displayed with elegant restraint and finesse. This should appeal to enthusiasts of both old school and modern style CDP.

    Totally unique. Exceptionally elegant. Beautifully perfumed. These were the impressions of the staff when we tasted the Marcoux CdP at our last Southern Rhone tasting. Never overly dark, but packed with soaring red fruit, aromas of lavender, and layers of strawberry and cherry notes. This is a Chateauneuf that moves towards a slightly lighter style and executes it with stunning success.

    Marcoux ranks as one of my top Chateauneuf producers. The sisters, Armenier have been great stewards of the land being one of the first biodynamically certified estates in the appellation. Under the watchful eye of winemaker Sophie Armenier, comes one of the great appellation wines of this vintage to my mind. I first tasted this wine, with Sophie in 2016, when it was still in its component parts. It was a scribble of notes describing a range of strawberries, spices, minerals, lavender and swirling dust. Now fully assembled, the wine is redolent of strawberry preserves, potpourri and minerals. It is long and full of finesse, and a couple of years in the cellar will be well rewarded.
