Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Domaine
- Rhône, France
"...a contender for the best value wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape."
A top domaine making rich, succulent wines of great style. Michel Maret has handed over the running of La Charbonnière to his daughters, Véronique who is now the winemaker and her sister Caroline. Their Cuvée du Domaine is an elegant take on Châteauneuf-du-Pape - rich and silky, with a delicious core of dark fruit and plush, rounded tannins.
"I continue to rave about these wines from the Maret family, and both these 2012s and 2013 are worth seeking out. I was especially impressed with their 2013s, as they have more concentration and higher quality tannins than most in the vintage. I’m sure these will drink nicely on release, but they should also evolve gracefully."
