Description

A powerful Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine by Vieux Télégraphe

The estate

After more than 125 years of existence, the Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is an emblem of Rhône Valley wines. Named after one of the telegraph towers installed on the estate in 1821 by inventor Claude Chappe, the estate has been run by the Brunier family for six generations. The Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is located on the La Crau plateau, in the south-east of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Of the 70 hectares that make up the estate, 65 are dedicated to red wines and 5 to white wines.

The vineyard

Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" 2020 is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine that stems from an exceptional vineyard of 50 hectares with vines aged on average 70 years old. The vines reson on soils made up of Miocene molasse (sandstone with clayey limestone cement) resting on a thick layer of clay loaded with rolled pebbles « galets roulés. »

The wine

This powerful and elegant wine is made from 60 year old vines.

Winemaking and ageing

After a harvest done by hand with double sorting in the vineyard followed by a third sorting in the cellar, the grapes were lightly crushed, with a further selective destemming. Fermentation then took place over a long period, ranging from 25 to 40 days in stainless steel and wooden vats. The wine was then aged for 20 to 22 months in 60 hectolitre French oak tuns.

Blend

Grenache (65%)
Mourvèdre (15%)
