A “classic Vieux Télégraphe all the way” is very high praise indeed from Jeb Dunnuck when one considers the perennial excellence of the domaine. Blessed with incredible finesse and elegance, the 2016 is certainly not shy in showing the full potential of the famed, high and stony La Crau plateau. With a gorgeous, classic bouquet of black raspberries, currants, violets, salty minerality and licorice, this is full-bodied, pure, incredibly elegant and with fine tannins that all culminate in a massive finish. Whilst it “has the balance to drink now”, we would encourage buyers to resist the siren call of Jeb Dunnuck’s drinking window and give bottles a mere couple of years in bottle before reaping the rewards through to 2043.

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

About Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe was founded in 1898 by Hippolyte Brunier and is still in the family. The intriguing name came from the view from an ageing signal tower, built-in 1792. Located in La Crau, arguably the grandest cru in Chateauneuf du Pape, their philosophy aims to get the most of this great terroir.   A leading “old-guard estate” of this historic appellation, Vieux Télégraphe continues to craft wines in a “classic, age-worthy, and uncompromising style” according to Jeb Dunnuck – for this ardent belief in unapologetically powerful expressions of their terroir, critics and collectors alike thank them most sincerely.   Winemaker and owner Daniel Brunier believes wholeheartedly in the terroir of his estate, refusing to compromise its integrity by crafting a “super cuvée” from a singled-out portion of the vines – in Brunier’s eyes, every inch of Vieux Télégraphe is worthy of inclusion in a “super cuvée”.
