Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Rouge

Chteauneuf-Du-Pape Rouge

Ref: A051812

Big nose with ripe, sweet cherries and notes of herbs. Grenache flavours dominate on the palate with lots of fruit balanced superbly by ripening tannins. This wine has a terrific weight and lovely texture. Drink now or cellar for up to ten more years.

Along with Château de Beaucastel, Vieux Télégraphe, is recognised as the very best estate in Châteauneuf. It is owned by the Brunier family, who also own Domaine de la Roquette, our other mainline Châteauneuf along with Domaine les Pallières, our favourite Gigondas. If Beaucastel represents power and weight then Vieux Télégraphe stands for elegance and restraint yet with a depth of complex flavours which appreciate time to blossom.

Vieux Télégraphe was founded in 1898 at Bédarrides by Hippolyte Brunier. It was in 1792 that Claude Chappe, the inventor of the optical telegraph, built one of his signal stations on the Plâteau de la Crau where the vineyards are located. Hippolyte therefore called his estate Vieux Télégraphe.
