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 bolstered by the addition of grapes from 45 year old vines of Château La Roquette, Vieux Télégraphe’s sister property. Deep purple in colour, the bouquet is expressive with ripe, black fruits and a lovely touch of herb. The palate is stunning, tightly structured with fleshy, concentrated black fruits and fine stylish tannins. Drink while you wait for “La Crau” to age.
