Vieux Telegraphe “La Crau” Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (750ml)
Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe is the family’s cradle and heart, but also the standard-bearer and flagship of Les Vignobles Brunier. Situated since its origin on Plateau de La Crau, in the southeast of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC, the estate has grown, developed and matured on this vast stony terrace which, generation after generation, has imparted all of its character. Of the 173 acres that form the domaine today, 65 are dedicated to red Châteauneuf-du-Pape and five to white.
Only four wines are produced: red and white Vieux Télégraphe, from the oldest vines and the most complex cuvées; and red and white Le Télégramme, Les Vignobles Brunier’s second wine in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC.
Clairette 40%, Grenache blanc 30%, Bourboulenc 15%, Roussane 15% Excibits delicate floral notes interwoven with hints of pears, nectarines, red currants and crushed rocks. It is a fresh, full bodied, delicious white to enjoy over the next several years.
