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

Made from younger vines (20 years old), this Châteauneuf has the pepperiness and depth and warmth that this appellation is famed for, but Télégramme gives that and more - rich and smoky with layers of red berries and coffee.

Food Matches

The perfect partner to a tender beef fillet.

Vinification

The Domaine’s second wine is produced in a very different way to “La Crau”. The grapes are fully destemmed before traditional 12-day fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A period of 9 months ageing in concrete tanks is followed by 6 months in oak foudres.
