2008 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Comprising a blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and the balance Cinsault. The aromas reveal a fine garrigue character, fragrant and appealing. The palate is vibrant in style with a sweet core of deep berry and cherry fruit as well as provençal herb. This is not a dense, tightly-packed Vieux-Télégraphe, instead it is very classic in style, showing some of the solidity that one would expect, but in a lighter, more fragrant vein. The tannins are well-expressed, gently underpinning attractive fruit and making for a forward-drinking Vieux-Télégraphe that will prove rewarding in its early years as much as with mid-term cellarage.

2008 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.
