Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015

The Armenier family have been making Châteauneuf-du-Pape at Domain de Marcoux for only about 700 years now!  Sophie and her son Vincent Armenier are the current winemakers and custodians at this prestigious address.

We are fortunate to gain access to a small amount of wine each year from this highly sought-after biodynamic producer of Chateauneuf du Pape. These are wonderfully pure, refined and textured Chateauneuf that reflect the vintage in which they are produced. For those who love the depth, power and longevity of old vine, low-yielding Chateauneuf, yet crave more elegance, these are wines to squirrel away in the cellar for special occasions in the future.

Sophie Armenier considers 2015 to be more elegant than 2016 at this estate, saying that the rain that fell in Châteauneuf du Pape on August 26 and the beginning of September came just at the right times. Picking started the third week in September, with La Crau finishing up on October 5. "We're not looking for too much ripeness or too much extraction," she says.

Don't miss out on the very rare 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes as it is always one of the greatest wines made anywhere in the world today, as Josh Raynolds at Vinous states; "I wouldn't be at all surprised to see this monumental wine turn out to be the star of the 2015 vintage in the Rhône Valley, south as well as north."
