Télégramme 2017, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe



Made from younger vines (20 years old), this Châteauneuf has the pepperiness and depth and warmth that this appellation is famed for, but Télégramme gives that and more - rich and smoky with layers of red berries, herbs and coffee.

The family run Brunier estate encompasses around 70 Ha across the windswept, arid and desolate Le Crau plateau and their wines are arguably the top wines from the whole appellation. 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.
