"The first thing to say about Marcoux’s blanc is that it’s atypically Roussanne-dominant (up to 70%), blended with Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc and Clairette. Most of the Roussanne and Bourboulenc hails from two parcels: Les Esqueirons where the cool, limestone-based soils are perfect for white grapes, and Les Bosquets, where the Bourboulenc brings citric freshness and drive to the layered Roussanne. The rest of the grapes come from parcels of Grenache Blanc and Clairette, which are co-planted in predominantly red sites. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed and fermented naturally in mostly steel tanks. Following a series of warm seasons, Southern Rhone whites have embraced the fresh 2021 vintage with open arms. Marcoux’s gift to the firmament is a chiselled and savoury white Rhône, which seamlessly blends glycerol richness and mineral energy with alluring flavours of white flowers and white stone fruit. The finish is filled with light. Even as a young wine, this is riveting. Otherwise, it will live and develop for decades." - Importer Notes
