    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”.

    Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2015 (6x75cl)

    James Suckling (96)

    A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. Try after 2020.

    James Suckling (98)

Super-fleshy, supple and dense core, then strong at the edges. Layer upon layer peels away on the finish. Resounding finesse and equilibrium, showing the full potential of the plateau La Crau.

    Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2017 (1x300cl)

    James Suckling (96)

    Immediately a sense of darker fruit in this vintage. The nose has closed up a little since tasting in barrel. It has some reserved, sanguine notes and an essence-like, raspberry core. Some stones and chalk here, too. Very long and focused palate. The grenache is singing here. Dense but soft and supple tannins, the product of thick, healthy skins. Best from 2025.

    Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (94-96)

    The final blend of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau will include 60% to 65% Grenache, 15% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, with the remainder Cinsault. Boasting complex scents of roses, black tea, raspberries and cherries on the nose, it follows that up with a full-bodied palate that's silky and airy in texture yet flavorful and tremendously long on the finish. It fits perfectly with the Brunier's stated goal of pursuing elegance.

    Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2019 (6x150cl)

    Jeb Dunnuck (96-98)

    Looking at the flagship 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape from this benchmark estate, it reveals a denser ruby/purple color as well as stunning notes of smoked red and black fruits, crushed rocks, peppery garrigue, and truffly earth. Hitting the palate with full-bodied richness, it stays tight and compact on the palate, with terrific mid-palate depth, a focused, structured mouthfeel, and one great finish. This is a brilliant Châteauneuf du Pape from the Brunier family that’s going to benefit from upwards of 5-7 years of bottle age and have 30+ years of overall longevity.

    Jeb Dunnuck (95)

    One of my favorite whites from the south of France is Daniel Brunier’s Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and his 2019 is another stunning effort. Always a blend of Clairette, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Bourboulenc brought up in foudre, this beauty boasts an exotic nose of honeyed peach, quince, crushed citrus, and salty minerality, all with a floral edge. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with flawless balance and beautifully integrated acidity, enjoy this concentrated white anytime over the coming 15-20 years.
