Chateauneuf du Pape 2005 Marcoux
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
2005 was a fabulous year for Marcoux, and the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah and Cinsault) boasts a dark plum/purple color along with beautiful bouquet filled with scents of flowers, truffles, roasted meats, blueberries, black raspberries, and licorice. This opulent, intense wine possesses heady alcohol as well as a sweet, soft, full-bodied, moderately tannic finish. This beauty is one of the finest traditional cuvees made over the last decade.

Supersilky, this has alluring raspberry and boysenberry fruit layered with linzer torte, spice, mocha and mineral notes that just won't quit on the long, perfumy finish.
