Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2018

Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2018

This year's blend is 72% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 3% Cinsault--so a little less Grenache and a little more Syrah than usual. With no Vieilles Vignes cuvée from 2018 (due to the low yields), all the Grenache from Marcoux's crown-jewel parcels of 120-year-old vines in the terroirs of Charbonnières and Les Esqueirons went into this wine.

The wine is juicy and seductive with surprising finesse and freshness and loads of garrigue, tapenade, ripe blackberry, redcurrant and violet characters and a smoky, salty close. So drinkable already, it is obviously all the better (deeper, more complex) for having all that old-vine fruit included. It will undoubtedly age well over 10-15 years, but the good news is that it will drink well young (from now in fact) so it's a superb restaurant vintage. Match it with any meat dish, a simple barbeque will do, chargrilled steak of course, a charcuterie plate, or anything cooked in, or finished with, red wine. It will be happy days...
