A world-renowned domaine, producing exceptional rich full-bodied heady wines year on year. This wine is produced from vines averaging 60 years of age and from the hottest vineyard in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, hence it is always one of the first to pick. The Grenache element was reduced this vintage, giving the other varietals a chance to show and hence the domaine's flagship wine is somewhat different this year - it is however another superb Vieux Telegraphe!

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.
The bouquet shows expanisve aromas of black fruits and fresh forest, the palate full of ripeness, plums, and black fruits. A beautifully structured wine with fine integrated tannins and bags of garrigue flavours.
Enjoy with the finest cuts of red meats, lamb and even goat. Good cheese and the smellier the better!
