Description

*** 92 Points - Average Cellar Tracker Score ***

"This is well into its drinking window and had plenty to give. Decanted for 2 hours, it held up well in the glass and had a nose of dried herbs and pepper with a lovely hint of brett, and sweet fruit with a tangy, peppery note on the palate, and a hint of tannin on the finish. Not improving but should be enjoyable for a few more years." Cellar Tracker

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by our family, the Brunier family, for six generations since 1891 and is now one of the most renowned estates of the Southern Rhône. The estate’s vineyards are large as there are about 45 hectares of red grapevines planted, 60 years old is the average age. They are planted on the celebrated Plateau of La Crau, a site renowned for grape-growing in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This terroir imparts to our wines a highly distinctive minerality, as if they have been filtered through the thick layer of large pebbles left behind when the Alpine glaciers melted, long before the Rhône Valley formed. Vieux Télégraphe's blend is a typical one, with Grenache accounting for around two thirds, the rest being made up of Syrah and Mourvèdre in roughly equal proportions, and a tiny bit of Cinsault.
