Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe 'Telegramme' Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2021

Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe 'Telegramme' Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2021

95 Points - La Revue de France. Le Télégramme comes from the younger vines of Vieux Télégraphe, from 30 years old wines, with a blend is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and 4% Cinsault. Ageing is in vats for 10 months followed by foudres for a further 7 months before bottling. The result is a delicious fruit driven Châteauneuf du Pape which drinks very well in its youth. Exceptional value for the property.

Wine Press Ratings

95 Points - La Revue de France

"The “gateway” to this historic estate has become a vintage in its own right, because it is no longer made up only of young vines but also of part of the vines of the former La Roquette estate. Its sumptuous fragrance leads us to scents of red fruit coulis. Fine and graceful, with a delicate texture, this wine is held together by delicate tannins, with appetizing and delicious fruit."

91 Points - Wine Advocate (2021)

"The plump, succulent 2021 Chateauneuf du Pape Telegramme offers cheerful strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant fruit. It’s medium to full-bodied, silky and elegant, offering plenty of near-term enjoyment. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."

About the Producer

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by the Brunier family for five generations, and since 1891. The estate’s vineyards are situated on the famous “Plateau de la Crau” the stony terrace where there is nothing but “galets roulés”, or rounded stones, as far as the eye can see. This special terroir imparts a highly distinctive minerality to the wines. Vieux Télégraphe is made from predominantly three grape varieties, 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre plus 5% Cinsault and Clairette. In their state-of-the-art gravity flow winery, the grapes are partially destemmed and are fermented in both stainless steel and wood cuves. The blending is done at the end of June after which the wine is matured in large foudres for 20 months. The red wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered and display tremendous concentration and intense flavours of dark cherry and “garrigue”. The best vintages will age for 20 years and more.
