The Domaine de la Charbonnière, which has been awarded a star in the famous French RVF guide, is growing in popularity with each vintage. Popular with Châteauneuf-du-Pape lovers, this model estate has been a success for several years now, thanks to the Varet sisters, its new winemaking generation, and a fabulous vineyard patrimony spread over different sectors of the appellation.
Olivier Poussier spotted it right away and his enthusiasm for this has never ceased. Especially since the prices remain so very reasonable compared to their competition.
