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

Lovely bright fruit, this is grippy but the tannins are so fine-tuned, exhibiting gourmand, moreish sloe and damson fruit, hints of spicy liquorice and fresh herbs, sweet, silky smooth, long and complex with a floral, fruity finish

Food Matches

Enjoy with the finest cuts of red meats, lamb and even goat. Good cheese and the smellier the better!
