Marcoux’s Châteauneuf is drawn from 13 parcels of vines, biodynamically farmed and dotted across the appellation. With a concentration on the famous Crau plateau, the parcels encompass a wide range of soil types, from the sandy soils of Charbonnières, to the red clay and galets in L’Arnesque and Les Bosquets, to the limestone and white clay in Les Esqueirons and Beaurenard, and finally the red clay and gravels of Les Galimardes, Les Serres and Les Plagnes in the south. This means Marcoux can produce a wine that truly reflects the Châteauneuf terroir as a whole. It also allows the domaine to craft balanced wines year in, year out, as each parcel is vinified separately prior to blending (and any parcels that do not fit the bill are typically declassified to Côtes-du-Rhône or sold to the négoce). The 2015 was raised in a blend of 80% concrete vat and 20% tronconique cuves for 18 months and was bottled unfiltered. The notes below are taken form the wine’s initial release.
