REGION: Châteauneuf du Pape, France
VARIETIES: 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
INFO: Charbonnière has 12 hectares of prime vineyard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 4.5 hectares in Vacqueyras. This is a top quality domaine making rich, succulent wines of great style.
Michel Maret has now handed over the running of the property to his daughters. Véronique is the winemaker and sister Caroline is in charge of the office.There are four different cuvées of Châteauneuf, each from different parcels of land. There is no destemming and vinification is traditional, in stainless steel and concrete vats, and open-top wooden fermenters. Elevage is in a mixture of new barriques, foudres and demi-muids.
Red fruit notes mingle with the complexity of dried herbs leading to an elegant palate with a liquorice finish.
