Domaine de la Charbonniere

The blending Grenache - Mourvedre gives a lush, soft, elegant wine with rich blackberry / blackcurrant, violet and cracked pepper notes. The palate is round, supple and dominated by this fruity and spicy complexity, with a mineral taste and a long finish.

Wine Advocate

My notes on the dense ruby/purple-colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes (95% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre from 80-year-old vines) begin with the words "serious stuff." Deep, rich, and full-bodied with abundant notes of forest floor, truffles, earth, kirsch, raspberries, and black currants, this powerful, layered, multidimensional, long, ageworthy wine should drink well between 2012-2028.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, October 2009.

Wine Spectator

A round, fresh style, with mouthwatering floral, red licorice, red cherry and plum notes all wrapped up by nice racy acidity. Pure and driven on the finish, with a lingering hint of roasted apple wood. Best from 2010 through 2024. 750 cases made.

Score: 92. —James Molesworth, October 15, 2009.
