Domaine de Marcoux Cotes du Rhone 2010, Rhone Valley, France

AUD$20 from Prince Wine Store. Domaine de Marcoux wines are biodynamically produced and exude elegance that is befitting the Armenier sisters who run the operation. Intense scarlet/ruby colour, lifted savoury nose of black pepper, black cherry and hint of strawberry essence. Smooth velvet texture, dry full-bodied wine with incredible acidity that cleanses the mouth. Clean pure fruit flavours of dark berries and cherry, moderate tannin load that impart a dry powdery finish. 14% alc. A good quality wine with interesting characteristics, good value for money. Drink now – 2017. 88/100
