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 2009 (1x300cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

A super showing for this wine, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is meaty and intense, with black olives and black cherries equally sharing the spotlight. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a long finish, it may be just a bit coarse in texture, but it delivers happiness in the glass. Drink now or hold; it should drink well for at least another decade.

A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits.

Impressive, complex array of wild cherries, raspberries, garrigue herbs, lightly spiced pastry and stony, chalky minerals. Super-fresh florals. The palate has superb texture, roundness, completeness, depth and detail. Powerful yet elegant with powdery tannins and essence-like red fruit. 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.

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.

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.

Brought up all in wood, one-third in foudre and the rest in demi-muid and barrels, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is mostly Clairette with the balance Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Bourboulenc. It offers lots of lemon and melon fruits, white flowers, toasted brioche, and honeysuckle aromas, medium to full body, beautiful purity of fruit, moderate acidity, and a layered, rich, textured style. It's going to flesh out beautifully with time in the cellar and keep for two decades.

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.
