Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Domaine de la Charbonniere was purchased by Eugene Maret in 1912. Over a hundred years later it is still a family affair with his grandson Michel Mart at the helm along with his wife, Mireille and two daughters, Veronique and Caroline. They all working together collaborating their thoughts, innovative ideas and creative vision for the vineyards. This wine is a classic showstopper - impeccably crafted and oozing with refined elegance. A blend of Grenache (95%) and Mourvedre (5%). Dark cherry, plum, and currants with intertwined layers of licorice, smoke, herb, earth, white pepper and floral. Lingering earthy finish. Tasted November 2017.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
