Marcoux’s silky and perfumed Côtes-du-Rhône is drawn from two small biodynamically farmed parcels of old vines on the edge of the Châteauneuf vineyards in the northern sector near Orange. There’s one hectare at Maucoil (planted in the 1930s) and another hectare at Boislauzon (planted in 1965). The grapes are sorted both in the vineyard and in the cellar—not all Côtes-du-Rhône is created equal. 

The blend this year is the traditional mix of 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).
From a cooler year, the balance between flesh and freshness offers prime-time appeal. This is crammed with both pure and seductive character; a deep aromatic profile led by red and blue fruit, peony florals and high-toned spice. Marked by signature Marcoux finesse, the palate is toned and textured and finishes long and fine with tapering chalky tannins adding to a structured finish. This is about as serious as you could expect of this AOC, a cracking baby Marcoux.
