92 points "Good medium red. Aromas of roasted plum, raspberry and redcurrant, plus a whiff of mocha. Juicy, bright and vinous, with urgent currant and raspberry flavors showing lovely elegance and impressive inner-mouth energy. Finishes very ripe and vibrant, with superb lift."

90 points "... a sexy, suprisingly up-front Marcoux with a succulent personality, tremendous opulence, and loads of blackberry liqueur aromas intermixed with melted licorice, smoke, and Asian spices. Drink this low acid, heady, plump, full-bodied, sexy Chateauneuf over the next 10-12 years." Best 2004-2014

"Marcoux produces wine from 40- to 60-year-old vines for their regular cuvée. The grapes are grown organically, and biodynamic techniques are used in the vineyard and cellar. The wine receives no fining, filtration, or destemming. No new oak is employed but rather tank, foudres, and neutral barrels are used."
