Wine Advocate

There's no Vieilles Vignes bottling this year because of the mildew that plagued the region, but Marcoux's regular bottling is no slouch. The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape has fantastic, complex aromas of cracked pepper, violets and roses, garrigue, cherries and raspberries. It's full-bodied and silky-textured, with plenty of length on the finish. Nicely done.
