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.
More floral than fruity aromas, and characterised by balance and freshness. A brilliant, gorgeous golden hue with green hints. There are aromas of pear, laced with anise and fennel on the bouquet. The palate is rich, creamy and complex with a touch of oak and overtones of apricot with an underlay of anise.
This is a member of the classic school of white Châteauneuf du-Pape, more floral than fruity aromas, and characterised by balance and freshness.
Try with roasted Hake with a sun dried tomato pesto.
The grapes are hand-picked, with a very strict double sorting at the vine. Pneumatic pressing. 50% fermented in vats, 50% in wood.
