DOMAINE DE LA CHARBONNIÈRE

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh Stylish, accomplished wines. The white has become extremely elegant. Both the 2014 and 2015 white Châteauneuf-du-Pape were ****(*) wines. The reds can pack a punch. The classic red Châteauneuf-du-Pape is bottled within a year these days, and is a lighter, busier and earlier wine than the main cuvées; it was STGT in 2014, and ****(*) in 2016. The best of the three special Châteauneuf-du-Pape reds in 2016, by some way, was the ***** Vieilles Vignes. It was also the top performer in 2018, when it was a ****(*) persistent, garrigue-influenced wine. The Vacqueyras vineyard was increased by 1.5 hectares of 1950s-1960s Grenache to 5.83 hectares in 2014; from 2015 that new vineyard is now responsible for the Vacqueyras Cuvée Spéciale red.
