Vieux Télégraphe 2016

Châteauneuf du pape

Vignoble Brunier

 

Tasting:

"Undoubtedly one of the top vintages of this wine, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau features classy notes of crushed stones and black tea to go along with ripe raspberries and black cherries. Full-bodied yet silky, there's more power and richness in La Crau than in Piedlong, yet there's commensurate elegance and finesse. The wine grows in intensity on the finish without ever seeming heavy or overripe, instead offering hints of tea and licorice." Joe Czerwinski

 

GEOGRAPHICAL SITUATION: stony plateau of the Crau River

(south-east of the appellation. Intersection of the villages of Bédarrides,

Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Courthézon).

resting on a thick layer of clay with a high pebble content, and covered

clairette and diverse 5%.

AGE OF THE VINEYARDS: 70 years old on average.
