Domaine de Marcoux Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2019

$50.00

The very definition of unforced power, supreme elegance and perfect balance. Intense bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, plum, blueberry, clove and thyme. Silken mouthfeel, sleek and the flavours travelling to the outer reaches of the palate. There’s a buoyancy, in contrast to effortless smoothness, the carry is long and accentuated by Marcoux’s trademark velvet. Tremendous value, South Africa the only country to rival such exquisiteness at this price. Ethereal, complete wine. Waters Wine Co

 

Marcoux’s silky, deep and perfumed Côtes du Rhône is drawn from two small parcels of old vines on the edge of the Châteauneuf vineyards in the northern sector near Orange (one hectare at Maucoil, planted in the 1930s and another hectare at Boislauzon planted in 1965). These biodynamically farmed old vines are on the edge of Châteauneuf—not all Côtes du Rhône is created equal. The blend of the 2019 is 80% Grenache with a balance of Syrah, Mourvèdre and a little Cinsault. The harvesting was done by hand, and fermentation was in cement tanks with wild yeast (the wine rested on skins for a total of two weeks).
