2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine de la Charbonnière

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine de la Charbonniere
This classic blend is made up of 75% Grenache, 15% of Syrah and Mourvèdre, the grapes sourced from across the appellation, with a slight emphasis on the pebbly soils to the east of the village. Generous and frim of purpose, the Cuvée Domaine has plenty of dark fruit and a pleasing savoury finish.
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012

Our first visit of our Southern Rhône week, and a most agreeable one, despite the early hour, Charbonnière continues to excel and, forgive the tautology, to develop as a classic traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The transition from père Michel to daughters Véronique and Caroline has been seamless and the quality gets better and better. Véronique compares 2010 with 2005 and 2000; for her 2009 was more like 2007, with a little more ‘residual’ sugar, courtesy of the Grenache.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine de la Charbonniere
70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre. Nine months in foudre.
Pale-ish crimson. Juicy and sweet and apparently almost tannin free! They just edge into frame on the end. Fun, relatively open for a 2010.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, Domaine de la Charbonniere
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color, a sweet, full-bodied nose of boysenberry, black cherry, licorice and spring flowers. A pure wine with excellent delineation, freshness and a long, heady finish, it should last for 10-15 years in a good cold cellar.
