2003 Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Rhone, France
WINE ADVOCATEWhat's a candidate for the wine of the vintage, the sensational 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) is a sunny, Provencal, sexy and incredibly full-bodied beauty. With a still youthful ruby color, a big mid-palate, sweet tannin and tons of decadent aromas of currants, black cherries, garrigue, chocolate and spiced meats, this blockbuster Chateauneuf du Pape delivers incredible intensity and flavor (it's over 16% alcohol), yet stays lively, graceful and seamless. It's ready to go, but will keep through 2023.
WINE SPECTATORDark and brooding, this has a massive core of blackberry ganache, blueberry jam, cocoa powder, tar, mesquite and charcoal flavors caged by ironclad tannins. Shows awesome depth and length of fruit even though the brawn of the vintage is dominant now. If you're considering hunting this white rhino, cellaring is a must. Best from 2008 through 2030. 315 cases made, 50 cases imported.
