Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, 'La Crau' 2012, Chateauneuf-du-Pape

 

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by one family, the Brunier family, for six generations - since 1891. 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 with 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.

Classic Chateauneuf with a hefty core of fig, blackberry and black cherry fruit, wrapped in chestnut and tobacco leaf notes and carrying through a lavender and tar-framed finish. Dense with a good degree of grip, showing a slightly old-school shading. This will continue to develop with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2030.
