As with the Mourre des Perdrix the 2009 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes possess beautiful pure fruit to go with a meaty Grenache driven personality. Classy and yet beautifully proportioned with superb fruit notable structure and a long finish this isn't as upfront as the Mourre des Perdrix but possesses just as much potential.

From their oldest vines comes the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes composed of 95% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre. This emerges from the high plateau of La Crau in the eastern part of the appellation and the vines are 85+ years of age. Huge sandy underbrush notes with pepper black cherry jam and hints of strawberries and spice box are all present in this fragrant full-bodied wine which is rich savory and irresistible already. It should drink well for at least a decade or more.

Juicy and nicely wound with a terrific core of cassis and blackberry fruit laced with dark licorice snap and roasted alder wood notes. The long finish is fruit-coated but with well-embedded minerality. Best from 2012...

The long finish is fruit-coated but with well-embedded minerality. Best from 2012 through 2022. -JM

Deep red. Vivid red berries and candied cherry on the nose, with suave spice and floral scents adding complexity. Silky and focused, displaying precise raspberry and cherry flavors and subtle allspice and herb qualities... Deep red. Vivid red berries and candied cherry on the nose, with suave spice and floral scents adding complexity. Silky and focused, displaying precise raspberry and cherry flavors and subtle allspice and herb qualities. The finish clings with good intensity and lingering spiciness. -- Josh Raynolds

Composed of 90% grenache from 80-to-100-year-old vines the remainder 45-year-old mourvedre grown in the Le Crau lieu-dit. Colored a clear ruby this is a firm structured rendition that stresses savory flavors over pure fruit expression. Dry with textural tannins that make up a slightly rough finish this will age well for 10-12 years.
