Domaine de Marcoux Côtes de Rhône (2015)

Domaine de Marcoux Côtes de Rhône

Notes

The earthy aromas, mixed with garrigue and black cherry, waft from the glass, segueing to the palate where the dark red fruit becomes more dominant.  As time passed, tobacco surfaced on the palate, making this wine even more interesting.  Pleasant tannins are chalkier on the finish, suggesting that this wine might benefit from some time in the cellar…but we are quite content to drink it now with juicy burgers, roast chicken, or even roast beef.  It is medium bodied and very well structured with its 14% alcohol nicely integrated.  A real treat that is surprisingly sophisticated for the price…until you learn about the old vines from which the grapes come and that Domaine de Marcoux is owned by the Armenier family of Chateauneuf-du-Pape fame.

A well-made wine!

We have enjoyed this wine several times since we discovered it at a Master class with Kevin Zraly. It drinks like a more expensive wine. Alot of complexity and structure for a Côtes de Rhône. Highly recommend it!
