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.
A wonderful wine! The palate is in perfect harmony with the nose, with fine elegant red fruits and a bouquet of spice, along with slight garrigue undertones, and tannins that ooze finesse. 2021 breaks the series of series of sunny vintages since 2015, which has resulted in a beautiful balancing freshness to the wine giving an equilibrium that will enable a long ageing process.
a bold and flavourful red wine that pairs best with barbecued beef ribs, duck, hamburgers, venison stew
The grapes are handpicked, sorted and partially destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks for between 25 - 35 days. After nine months in concrete tanks, the wine is then aged for 10 months in 60hl oak foudres. The wine is is then bottled, without filtration, after 20 months.
