Farmed by the Brunier family for six generations and more precisely since 1891, the vineyard is located on the Crau plateau, the Mecca of Châteauneuf-du-Pape viticulture. In 1821, Claude Chappe, the inventor of the optical telegraph, installed one of his relay towers on the vineyard plateau. Jules, Henri Brunier's great-grandson, gave the fruit of his labor the apt name of "Vieux Télégraphe". After more than 125 years of history, the winegrowers have kept the original philosophy alive.
With its ruby color, the Vieux Télégraphe is an intense, well-structured and harmonious wine, mixing ripe fruits (plums, cherries), floral notes and spices (curry). Several hours of decanting will be necessary to taste this wine. On the palate, it is powerful but sweet with flavors of raspberry and cherry. A roasted pigeon with porcini mushrooms goes very well with this wine.
