Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2011

£81.00

Description

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by 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 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.

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR – #172 – JAN/FEB 2014 – JOSH REYNOLDS
Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, cherry compote, potpourri and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, showing terrific clarity and spicy lift. The spicy quality comes back strong on the finish, which is framed by silky, harmonious tannins. In a graceful, almost weightless style, with zero excess fat but noteworthy flavour intensity. 93
