A lovely licorice snap note leads off, followed quickly by crushed raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Rich yet restrained, with light shiso leaf, iron and incense details weaving throughout. The silky finish lets the fruit linger with a sustained hum. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2035.

Even and supple red to dark cherry and red plum fruits with a palate presence that has powerful ripe tannins that are presented in a smooth, balanced style. Extremely concentrated. This is terrific. Best from 2020.

Richer and more deeply textured than the other cuvées from Charbonnière, 90% of the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes comes from 70- to 100-year-old Grenache vines in La Crau, supplemented by 10% Mourvèdre off 45-year-old vines. It has the same estate signature of red cherries and stone fruit, with just hints of spice on the long, velvety finish.
