2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Another darkly brooding wine from this vintage, with notes of damson fruit and morello cherry on the nose. Concentrated and dense on the palate, richly fruit-laden, with robust tannins providing a considerably weight and structure. There are, however, balancing garrigue notes of thyme and heathland flowers and a zip of refreshing acidity that prevent this from becoming bruising and inapproachable. Definitely in need of some patience, but very good indeed.

2010 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.
