Technical Details

Structured and intense, this Southern Rhone gem leads with intensity and finds balance on the palate with a mid-palate extraction, concentration and mature tanninic structure. Opulent notes of dark cherries, raspberries, and dried herbs . The mouth is utterly elegant with beautiful length driven by black berries and licorice.

A Grenache & Syrah grape blend.

The Estate

Domaine de la Charbonniere has always been deeply familial, with the fourth generation of the Maret family now in charge; the eldest daughter, Veronique Maret, took over winemaking responsibilities in 2007 and she and her sister Caroline have run operations since 2014 (though the entire family, including their mother, Mireille, and father, Michel, can still be found working hard in every aspect of the winemaking process).

Wine Making

Veronique’s most notable influences at Domaine de la Charbonniere have been to update and modernize the winery itself while also more adamantly employing organic winemaking practices. She brings new perspective and energy to a traditional estate that will surely find itself in the spotlight in vintages to come

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, lamb, and game such as deer and venison.

Jeb Dunnuck – 92

"As to the 2019s, these show slightly more richness and depth compared to the 2020s, but both vintages are terrific. The 2019 Vacqueyras gives up plenty of pepper, new leather, and ground herb notes as well as a core of darker berry fruits. It’s beautifully textured and medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a great finish."

James Suckling – 92

"A rich Southern Rhone red with impressively fine tannins that balance both the full body and deep black fruit. Long and supple yet finely nuanced finish with subtle spicy notes."

Wine Spectator – 92

"A polished red, showing heady blackberry, black licorice and singed herbs that glide through, with cracked pepper, warm earth and savory acidity. The tannins are starting to release their grip on the long finish. Grenache and Syrah."
