Vieux Telegraphe

Background

One of the most renowned estates in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Vieux Telegraphe has one of the greatest terroirs in the appellation. Located in La Crau, Vieux Telegraphe's vineyards enjoy a unique and extremely hot microclimate, allowing them to harvest 7-10 days ahead of anyone else. The estate is run by the brothers Daniel and Frederic Brunier who have been continuing to raise the bar on quality. Old vineyards (the average age of the vines is 55 years), conservative yields, and a forward thinking approach has generated huge success for the Brunier brothers. Although the vineyards are planted with predominantly Grenache (around 60-70%), there has been a move in recent years to use slightly more Syrah and Mourvedre in the final blend.

The wines which, since the late '80s, are bottled unfiltered never see any new oak. They are instead vinified in stainless steel and then moved to large wooden foudres until bottling. The resulting wines are rich, elegant and age worthy Chateauneufs, a must for any serious Rhone collectors.
