The focus here is on Grenache, with an average vine age of fifty years old, all planted in a diverse mix of soils, from red clay to sand and stones. The Châteauneuf du Pape of Domaine de m arcoux is often compared to a Pinot Noir of the m editerranean, which you can only imagine results from the combination of terroir and the tranquil and thoughtful way that Catherine and Sophie go about their work. Here, it is all about balance, with everything in its place, yet somehow also exciting, exotic and utterly spellbinding. ✦ Marcoux Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2016 J d 95 » $65 "...gives up sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, graphite, candle wax, and spice. This rich, full-bodied, yet seamless Châteauneuf du Pape has a powerful, balanced style... gorgeous wine." Jeb Dunnuck (1413146) Marcoux Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2016 J d 99 » $165 "...Deep, rich, and powerful, yet with the hallmark elegance of the estate, it has fine tannin, an awesome mid-palate, incredible purity and a huge finish. It's another great, great vintage for this cuvée that readers shouldn't miss."

Going back, the a rmenier family were more farmers and vine growers, selling the fruit from their esteemed vineyards. That is, of course, before they realized the true potential of their terroir.
