A classic Châteauneuf the 2009 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape - a blend of 70% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvèdre - sports loads of southern Rhône flair with notions of spiced meat leather and licorice characteristics giving way to beautifully ripe pure red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied ripe round and with a clean dry finish this is delicious now but can also be cellared for 5-8 years.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre aged in foudres. This wine is one of the darkest of the vintage for Maret and a classic example of Provencal viticulture. Ground pepper kirsch liqueur garrigue spice box and loamy soil notes jump from the glass of this dense rich supple concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape. It possesses loads of fruit a lushness that is enormously charming and an up-front precociousness that suggests drinking over the next 7-10 years.

Dark and winey with a big core of cassis plum eau-de-vie and fig sauce notes carried by sleek rounded structure. The long finish lets the fruit drip while hints of pastis and violet weave in.

The long finish lets the fruit drip while hints of pastis and violet weave in. Approachable now but can be cellared mid-term as well. Drink now through 2019. -JM

The aromas are reticent and closed but the flavors are deep and the texture is quite juicy. A beautifully proportioned wine this is perfectly balanced and harmonious offering structure on the backpalate as fine tannins contribute to a long lingering finish. The flavors prompt you to return again and again for another taste. Approachable now look for this wine to peak in 8-10 years.
