Télégramme 2018 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

TELE075
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. The blend is now bolstered by the addition of grapes from 45 year old vines of Château La Roquette, Vieux Télégraphe’s sister property. This wine is always beautiful, exuberant and stylish, medium to full-bodied richness with a fleshy, ripe, supple profile. Drink while you wait for “La Crau” to age.

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.
