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

 

Always a top Domaine and making rich succulent wines of great style.

 

Domaine la Charbonnière has 12 hectares of prime vineyard in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 4.5 in Vacqueyras – this is a serious, established, top quality Domaine.

 

The Vacqueyras is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah from vines aged between 20 – 35 years.

 

No destemming takes place. Vinification is traditional, in stainless steel and concrete vats, and now open-top wooden fermenters.  Élevage is in a mixture of new barriques, foudres and demi-muids for 6-8 months.


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.
