Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by the Brunier family, for six generations - since 1891. The estate’s vineyards are planted on the celebrated Plateau of La Crau, a site renowned for grape-growing in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wines of Vieux Télégraphe evoke the concept of terroir in its purest form.
Rich, full-bodied, and balanced, it’s polished and seamless, yet has plenty of tannins as well as richness. It provides a palate that's silky and airy offering beautiful blueberry, plum, blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet, graphite, tobacco, leather, oak, and crushed rock-like minerality. The wine is bottled unfiltered, after 22 months of aging. Always a great match for lamb or a stnding rib roast.
