2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Grenache was the star of the 2000 vintage, creating a velvety Vieux-Télégraphe. Terrific warmth and ripeness on the nose evokes thoughts of languid summer days lying out in the hot sun. This leads on to a display of red and black fruits, spice, leather and warm earth on the palate. The impressive finish has soft tannins and reveals an underlying structure hidden by the hedonistic, mouthfilling mid-palate. There is easily another 10 years lifespan to this wine, but the freshness and ripe tannin make it one that will give tremendous satisfaction in its youth.

2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
Frédéric et Daniel Brunier

Brothers Daniel and Frédéric Brunier took over Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, one of the largest in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with seventy hectares under vine, from their father Henri. While he recently passed away, they continue his work cultivating their prized parcel on ‘La Crau,’ considered one of the top sites in the region. Rightfully so, these wines are some of the most recognised Châteauneufs.
