Domaine de la Charbonnière
Charbonniere Cotes du Rhone 2019
Varietal: 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
Region: Cotes du Rhone, France
Appreciated by most Cotes du Rhone Organic Wine drinkers.
Medium red ruby. The nose has a softly spiced aroma of red berry fruit, herbs de Provence present. The palate is mild, with a quiet display of strawberry fruit and white pepper, spicing along its sides. There is a little rocky breeze in the tannins.
Domaine Charbonniere is a contender for the best value wine in Chateauneuf du Pape. Today, the fourth generation Veronique and Caroline have been working at the domain for some years and since 2014 they have taken over the management. Veronique has been responsible for the wine-making since 2007 with her father Michel still working at the domaine. The property covers 18.5 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape, 4 ha of Vacqueyras, 2 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 3 ha of IGP. Since 2015 the vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique.
We love paing this wine with a soflty baked camembert on toasted french baguette to start and after will combine well with a medium rare grilled sirloin based with chimichurri. And if there is any left after all of that you can certainly have it with a smooth dark chocolate.
