Domaine De La Charbonniere 2016 Chateauneuf-Du-Pape, Mourre Des Perdrix
Pricing includes standard shipping in the continental U.S.
In 1912, Domaine de la Charbonnière was purchased by Eugene Maret and 100+ years later, it is still a family owned estate. Enormous care is taken at harvest time; hand-picked with a selective sorting of grapes in the vineyard and at the cellar (by using a sorting table). Flavors of dark fruits, featuring fig and blackberry preserves, this delivers a dense and steeped feel but also throws off beguiling perfume, ending with warm anise, incense and black tea notes on the structured finish.
