Vine age is an important contributory factor in the production of high quality Châteauneuf du Pape: a great number of the Charrier’s Grenache vines are centenarians, these gnarled vines giving richly concentrated juice, contributing complexity and depth of flavour to their wine. A field blend from 5 plots, predominantly comprising Grenache (95%) with the other 12 grape varieties authorised for Châteauneuf production (most red, some white), this wine is very much of the elegant rather than muscular Châteauneuf school. Deep ruby-purple colour, aromas are floral and tightly woven, with notes of sweetly-spiced raspberries. Palate starts full and grows in the mouth; it is well-structured, multi-layered, with admirable underlying power. Texture is silky, the finish being lively, fine and fresh (for drinking 2018-2025+).
