One of the Rhône’s great estates, Vieux Telegraphe is run by Fredec and Daniel Brunier, the great-grandsons of founder, Hippolyte Brunier. The domaine occupies some 70 hectares on the stony plateau of Le Crau in the east of the Châteauneufdu- Pape appellation. The wines of Vieux Telegraphe are true classics – robust and earthy with strong personalities and a great track record of longevity in the cellar.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
One of the most age-worthy Cuvées in the appellation, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe’s 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape was gorgeous on this occasion, showing classic iodine, seaweed and peppery herbs intermixed with layers of sweet currant, plum and blackberry fruits.
