Immediately after handpicking and the obligatory sorting of the grapes, the reds go through a traditional vinification: long fermentation on the skins from 15 to 18 days. Seventy-five percent of the grapes are crushed, the balance is put in the tanks whole. Usually three months later, wines are transferred into oak barrels for 6 to 12 months depending on the vintage. Every three months, the wines are racked in order to aerate and refine them.

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. Drink now through 2025.

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. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.
