Description

This small production estate wine draws grapes from across 13 parcels of the Chateauneuf appellation, making an authentic reflection of this famous place - all done organically and biodynamically.

Approx 80% Grenache with some Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault making up the numbers. Spicy, rich, and sappy, this is a texturally complex Rhone red with lots of maturing to do.

The Marcoux Chateauneufs are dense and silky wines that are right at the pinnacle of great Rhone wines.

As is customary, the wines were naturally fermented and raised in concrete vat (up to 90%) and large oak, without any new oak. The aging spanned 18 months and the wine was bottled unfiltered. A model of purity, charm, and freshness, Marcoux’s 2019 is a thrilling Châteauneuf from one of the region’s great artisans.


On the one hand it is a wine for the long haul, yet with such striking balance (the notes below really capture the deliciousness and charm already on offer). From the first sip it sings of aromatic precision and caressing red fruit (ripe raspberry, silken berries, violets and wild strawberry). Carved to perfection by succulent tannins and surging vitality, this is a big wine with a heart of gold, yet there is not an ounce of fat: it’s a lithe, focused, and athletic style of Châteauneuf from what was obviously a superb vintage. Match it with any meat dish (a simple barbeque will do, chargrilled steak of course), a charcuterie plate, or anything cooked in red wine—it will be happy days.

94 Points - "“Bright ruby. Vibrant, spice-accented aromas of raspberry and cherry liqueur, incense and pungent flowers are accompanied by a smoky mineral nuance that builds in the glass. Deep-pitched yet impressively lively as well, offering intense red and dark berry liqueur and floral pastille flavors that stain the palate and show superb clarity and minerally lift. Closes extremely long, focused and lively, with silky tannins framing the wine’s sweet fruit. This is about as good as a "basic" Châteauneuf gets.” - Josh Raynolds (Vinous.com)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
