"A rich, yet silky and suave, style, with raspberry pâte de fruit and mulled red currant flavors infused heavily with incense, dried anise and black tea notes. The long finish shows a sandalwood echo and a well-buried mineral hint. So charming, this is approachable now, but there's no rush." 93/100, Wine Specator
Michel Marets 23 hectare estate, Domaine de la Charbonniere, is producing better and better wines every year and now ranks in the top echelon of Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers. And now both his daughters are working on the vineyard, always improving the quality of this domaine, which has a large number of small parcels located in the four different sectors of the appellation with a very high average vine age.
