| 1997 Domaine de Marcoux Chateauneuf du Pape|
WB Rating: 85
Alcohol by volume: 14.5%
Price at time of purchase: $14.00 (K&L)
Principal varietal(s): Southern Rhone blend
Surprisingly evolved, transparent red/purple color with even a bit of amber at the edge. Pleasant if reserved nose of strawberry jam, chocolate, and tobacco. Somewhat Burgundian mouth feel, though the alcohol gave it some warmth. Some slight bitter tannin the finish. Made from old vines, a good though not memorable Chateauneuf du Pape at a more than fair price. - WB Team 2000-09-13
