Michel Maret has now been joined by his two daughters, Véronique, helping with the wine making, and Caroline, running the office with Madame Maret.

 

With 12 hectares of prime vineyard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 4.5 in Vacqueyras, this is a serious,  established,  top quality domaine.

 

Vinification is traditional, in stainless steel and concrete vats, and now open-top wooden fermenters. Elevage is in a mixture of new barriques, foudres and demi-muids.


There is now a temperature controlled cellar which gives Michel more room and the ability to bottle when he wants and all in one go.


The Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc, made from Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Clairette grown on the pebble strewn plateau des Brusquières is now one of the best in the region.

 

A pale straw colour the nose is very dry with spice and pepper and subdued fruit in the background. The palate is big and rounded with warm textured fruit, poised acidity and a long finish.
