    Product description

    If you were asked to name a top Châteauneuf producer, Vieux Télégraphe would undoubtedly be one of your top picks. The winery sits on the site of a former telegraph station which is where the name derives from and is famous for producing wine with a highly distinctive minerality sourced from vineyards planted on the Plateau de ‘La Crau’.

    Aromas of cherry and licorice with spicy notes. A classy wine with great freshness, structure and a long life ahead. – DWM, May 2016

    “Bright ruby. Intense red fruit and potpourri aromas show excellent precision and a suave, spicy character. Licorice and lavender nuances add complexity to juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, with the wine putting on weight in the glass. Finishes taut and youthfully tangy, with echoing licorice and spice notes.”93 pts Stephen Tanzer‘s International Wine Cellar, February 2012

    French still red wine from South Rhone Valley France, made with Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah.
