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

An appetising, taut and elegant white wine from Châteauneuf. Flowers and peach blossom dominate the bouquet, whilst the palate oozes a tangy nectarine and citrus combination, giving a delicious balance.

Food Matches

Try with grilled fish and asparagus dressed with olive oil.
