Domaine de la Charbonnière is one of the finest in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, making rich, succulent wines balancing power with finesse. Michel Maret has now handed over the running of the property to his daughters, Véronique and Caroline.
This is the jewel in the Domaine de la Charbonnière crown and is regarded as one of the top white Chateauneufs. Made from 40% Roussanne, 40% Grenache Blanc and 20% Clairette, it sings with ripe peaches and nectarines, honey, butter, baking spices and toast.
