2020 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes
Two sisters Véronique and Caroline now run the family estate with 12 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and another 4.5 hectares in Vacqueyras. The red Châteauneuf-du-Pape often contains a lot of Grenache in the blend and almost always comes froms old vines.
The Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is nearly 100% Grenache with a splash of Mourvèdre. The Grenache comes from a plot of hundred-year-old vines on clay-sandy soil in the vineyard called "La Crau" and since 2017 one plot from "Coudoulet".
Mourvèdres come from the "Cristia" lieu-dit.
