Domaine de la Charbonniere

CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE, RHONE, FRANCE

This a property dominated by the theme of love. Brought in 1912 by Eugene Maret as a gift for his wife the estate is now owned by the third generation Michel Maret. Michel has run the estate with his wife since 1973 and now has daughters Veronique and Caroline fully involved in what is truly a family project.

They own 17.5 hectares of vineyards in Chateauneuf du Pape and another four in Vacqueyras, and all the wines are bottled with no filtration.  They are great old, but also drink very well when newly released.
