Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Vieux Télégraphe is one of the most renowned estates of the Southern Rhône. The large Domain has about 45 hectares of red grapevines planted, with an average age of around 55 years. Blessed with one of the finest locations in the area, the particularly hot microclimate is such that the Brunier Family, owners of the estate for almost a century, are able to harvest as much as a week ahead of their neighbours.

Tasting Notes

Maturing well with a palate of cherry fruit, earth, leather and pepper. The tannins are soft and there is a little touch of Grenache spice on the finish.

Food Matches

Serve with a lovely fillet steak with, or without a truffle sauce.
