Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape "La Crau"

Description

WINE SPECTATOR 95
“This has a lovely, perfumy mix of savory, mint, tobacco, blood orange, cherry and bergamot notes all mixed together, carried by silky but ample structure before ending with a long, mineral- and shiso leaf—infused finish. Finely beaded acidity lets everything hang wonderfully. This should expand and cruise in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035.” 

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is the flagship wine of Les Vignobles Brunier. Vieux Télégraphe is always produced from the estates oldest vines. Vieux Télégraphe comes from fruit planted in La Crau on a terroir that is littered with various, large and small rocks and stones.
