Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2020/19/13/11

90% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre

Grenache comes from a plot of hundred-year-old vines on clay-sandy soil located in the vineyard called “La Crau” and since 2017 one plot from “Coudoulet”. Mourvèdres come from the “Cristia” lieu-dit.

Very ripe black cherry fruit with pepper and touches of pepper on the nose. Full-bodied with delightful elegant finely grained tannins right through to the finish. It has all that lovely pure fruit that one should expect from very old Grenache vines. The Mourvedre brings some lovely meaty notes when the wine is young. Incredible finish. A classy wine that will get better and better over a 15 year period, maybe even longer.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

The domaine is now run by the fourth generation of the Maret family, Veronique and Caroline. The original vineyards were purchased in 1912 by Eugene Maret as a gift for his wife. The estate was enlarged by their son, Fernand and his son, Michel was the first to produce wine in 1973. The estate includes 19ha in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 6ha in Vacqueyras and 2ha of Côtes du Rhône. The terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape includes two large plots of quite distinct terroir which produce two quite different cuvées, “Mourre des Pedrix” (sandy soils) and “Les Hautes Brusquières” (stoney soils). The main Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Cuvée Domaine” is produced from a blend of many small, plots of varying terroir in the north east of the appellation. The Vacqueyras wine is grown on a stoney, clay plateau. The majority of the wines are fermented and aged in very “foudres” (large oak casks).
