2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

The Bruniers describe this as a wine needing some patience, due its natural concentration caused by the low yields in this vintage. Dark and brooding in the glass, this has notes of black berries and damson on the nose, with a hint of an almost violet florality. On the palate, this at once rich and ethereal, with ripe fruit and robust, yet balanced tannins, offset by heady notes of wild thyme and jasmine. A very fine Vieux Télégraphe.

2009 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.
