Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Telegraphe 600cl 2011
Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is a family owned and operated estate and is one of the preeminent producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Though one of the largest landowners in the region, they only produce two red and two white wines, of which this is the flagship. It is a traditionally styled wine usually comprised of around 65% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah from the prime lieu-dit of La Crau. The 2011 release is wonderfully perfumed and elegant, offering up notes of red berry fruit, kirsch, wild herbs, olive and crushed stones.
