Overview

  • Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by the Brunier family for six generations – since 1891 to be precise. The estate’s vineyards, 60 years old on average, are planted on the celebrated Plateau of La Crau, a site renowned for grape-growing in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This terroir imparts to the wines a highly distinctive minerality as if they have been filtered through the thick layer of large pebbles left behind when the Alpine glaciers melted, long before the Rhône Valley formed.

Tasting Notes:

  • Undoubtedly one of the top vintages of this wine, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau features classy notes of crushed stones and black tea to go along with ripe raspberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet silky yet there are commensurate elegance and finesse. The wine grows in intensity on the finish without ever seeming heavy or overripe, instead offering hints of tea and licorice.

Food Pairing

  • Red meat (beef, veal, lamb, deer, venison…)
