Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Telegraphe 2012


Tasting Note

A truly magnificent property in Châteauneuf situated on Plateau de la Crau, the stony terrace where there is nothing but galets roulés (rounded stones) as far as the eye can see. Vieux Télégraphe is made from predominantly three grape varieties, 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre plus 5% Cinsault and Clairette. In their recently entirely modernised and refurbished 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. The red wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered and display tremendous concentration and intense flavours of dark cherry and garrigue.
