Made from younger vines (20 years old), this Châteauneuf has the pepperiness and depth and warmth that this appellation is famed for, but Télégramme gives that and more - rich and smoky with layers of red berries and coffee. The perfect partner to a tender beef fillet.

Grapes are hand-picked, with double sorting at the vine, then a third sorting in the winery. They are destemmed, followed by 25-30 days’ traditional fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. Pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation. The wine remains in vats for 10 months, then in French oak foudres (30 hl) for about 7 months. Bottled at 15-16 months, released at 18 months. 

Vieux Télégraphe is one of the most renowned estates of the Southern Rhône. The large Domain has about 45 hectares of red grapevines planted, with an average age of around 55 years. Blessed with one of the finest locations in the area, the particularly hot microclimate is such that the Brunier Family, owners of the estate for almost a century, are able to harvest as much as a week ahead of their neighbours. The family run Brunier estate encompasses around 70 Ha across the windswept, arid and desolate Le Crau plateau and their wines are arguably the top wines from the whole appellation.

Wrong year

This is not the 2016 (great year) as advertised. I received the 2017 (not a good year) and then had to take it to the post office to send it back. Plus I received somebody else's order by mistake. At least 12 Green Bottles arranged to pick that one up. None of this made a great impression, though Tory was very helpful.
