Description

Red Wine by Domaine de Marcoux from Rhône, France – Rhone. A relatively new addition to their holdings and totaling 8 hectares, their property in Lirac is a mix of Grencahe, Syrah and Mourvedre on a complex terroir of sand, pale clay limestone and gravelly red clay. It was a sadly neglected vineyard so it has taken many years to convert this site to biodynamics which is just beginning to show in the wines. What was once simple and benign has become stony and refined with a raciness from the Syrah (up to 30% of the blend) and real muscle from the Mourvedre (also up to 30% of the blend). A unique wine in the context of the property and a very serious style for Lirac.
