2012 Domaine Charbonniere 'Mourre des Perdrix'Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Single vineyard cuvee. All grapes are from the locality called “Mourre des Perdrix”. It is a half-plateau situated on Courthezon. The terroir is composed by different soils: (red clay, with round pebbles and sandy marl).The nose reveals black fruits, prune, with a husky, brothy setting alongside it. Black olives and airs of rosemary also feature. It carries some mystery. The palate starts on big flavoured black fruited matter, and continues with drive and fullness to the finale, where there are tarred, smoky moments. This reaches the finish still on the first momentum of the attack, is a bold and sustained wine.
