The Vieilles Vignes, a cuvée made entirely from old-vine Grenache, made in vintages where the Grenache is abundant, rich and complex. It is sourced from the sandy soils of Charbonnières (planted 1900) the limestone marl of Esquierons (planted 1900/1949) and the gravelly red clay of Gallimardes (planted 1934/1959). It is aged entirely in 350L barrels for 18 months. While more concentrated and structured than the regular cuvée, it still possesses the delicate floral and spice character that is the signature of this domaine. No Vieilles Vignes was produced in 2013 or 2014.
Marcoux is one of the benchmark producers in the appellation of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. They were a pioneer in organic and biodyanmic farming back when the estate was created in 1989. Oenologist Sophie Estevenin continues to create some of the most beautifully balanced wines in the region with the help of sister Catherine who oversees the viticulture along with Sophie's son, Vincent. They farm just over 28 hectares about 18 of which are in Chateauneuf. The cellar is modest, utilizing concrete and stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Some larger foudre (large oak barrels) are used for the white and Vieilles Vignes. The classic Marcoux is made up of primarily Grenache with bits of Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre rounding out the blend. It is always one of the top wines of any vintage and this one is no different.
