Domaine de la Charbonnière, Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Fresh violet, black cherry, and perfume this supple blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.
It’s opulent but freshly composed rather than dense and brooding.
Tannins are ripe, persistent, and should meld beautifully through 2030 and possibly beyond.
The Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is produced from La Crau and is silkily rich with marvelous aging potential while the Hautes Brusquières is a perennial favorite, atypical as it is with its high Syrah component.
