1998 Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes - 100 pts!
The profound, dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 reveals tell-tale blackberry liqueur aromas and flavors are present, as well as a formidable level of glycerin, admirable richness, and a soaring bouquet of black fruits, minerals, lavender, and exotic spices. The finish lasts 50+ seconds, and the wine’s purity and multiple dimensions are staggering. This is a dazzling, full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape that is unbelievably concentrated, unctuous, well-balanced and silky-textured. There is not a rough edge to be found. Anticipated maturity: now-2020. Catherine and Sophie Armenier continue to fashion one of France’s greatest wines. There are 750 cases produced from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, and 10% miscellaneous varietals. RP
