Domaine de Marcoux

About Domaine de Marcoux

Sisters Sophie and Catherine Armenier can trace their familial connection to this region of France back over 1,000 years. Their ancestors called the Southern Rhône home when their surname was the middle-French "Armani", and long before Châteauneuf-du-Pape was known by this name.

 

Despite their presence in the area for so many centuries, it was actually only the sisters themselves who began winemaking at their ancestral Domaine de Marcoux in 1989. Now taking full advantage of their holdings which consist of vines at an average of 50 years old, this beautiful estate has seen a rapid and meteoric rise to the upper echelons of the region, joining many producers who have had a 500 year head start! 

 

Today, Sophie diligently runs the commercial aspect of the estate whilst Catherine masterminds the winemaking. With 25 hectares in total under vine, 18 of which are in the heart of the prime Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir of La Crau, the sisters consistently release some of the most sought after wines each and every vintage. Certified as organic by Ecocert as early as 1991, they celebrate 30 years of following rigorous organic and then biodynamic principles.

 

Most usually a blend dominated by at least 80% Grenache, a mere 2,400 cases of this estate's hotly demanded Châteauneuf-du-Pape are produced every vintage.

Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2006 (6x75cl)

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (91-94 )

Bright red. Energetic red berry and cherry aromas are brightened by minerals, dried flowers and anise. Racy redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are braced by youthful tannins and become sweeter with air, finishing with great snap and sappy length. Reminds me of an elegant Chambolle-Musigny.

Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

Looking at the reds, Marcoux's 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a mostly tank-aged blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah and 3% Cinsault. Loaded with Provencal charm, it exhibits notes of sweet kirsch, dried licorice, herbs de Provence and sweet spice. This medium to full-bodied 2011 possesses a seamless, elegant profile, beautiful purity and sweet tannin. Up-front and already delicious, enjoy it over the coming decade or so. Drink now-2023.

Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

(fermented in concrete vats and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and wood casks) Ruby-red. Energetic, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red and dark berries, complicated by suggestions of incense and pungent flowers. Broad and fleshy on entry, then more taut in the midpalate, offering pliant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suggestion of five-spice powder. Finishes very long and sweet, featuring slow-building tannins, a touch of smokiness and repeating red fruit character. This wine is shaping up to be an outstanding "basic" Châteauneuf.

Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2016 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93)

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah, aged predominantly in concrete and foudre. Biodynamically farmed and traditionally made, it reached 15.5% alcohol, which shows a bit in the wine's size and slight warmth. It's full-bodied, rich and velvety, with bold black cherry fruit, hints of clove and cola and a long, savory-spicy finish. I'd opt for drinking it over the next 6-7 years.

Decanter (93)

A rounded and generous style, very soft and ripe in fruit but with a firm acid core. Feels in better harmony than some this vintage. Good freshness, a complete wine. Lieux-dits L’Arnesque, Beau Renard, La Bigote, Les Gallimardes, mostly galets roulés.

Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (96-99 )

Deep red. Stunningly aromatic nose offers a kaleidoscopic array of fresh and dried floral scents, red and dark berry tones and minerals. The nose seemed to expand with air, taking on depth and power: I thought I could taste the bouquet! Lush, concentrated and sweet, with a panoply of dark cherry and berry flavors, velvety tannins and a bright spicy character on the back. The finish boasts a palate-staining persistence that's simply uncanny. I wonder which of my daughters I should trade for some of this.
