Vieux Télégraphe's 2nd wine "Télégramme" is made from younger vines (25 year old). Based mostly on Grenache with some Mourvèdre. Full of dark cherries, firm tannins and cedar. A full-bodied red from a classic, very solid vintage.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 91Ripe, with nice kirsch and raspberry fruit backed by darker hints of applewood-smoked bacon, plum sauce and dark licorice. Juicy and long on the finish, this stretches out nicely. A great second wine. Best from 2009 through 2025.


Winemaker's Notes:

A Châteauneuf-du-Pape seriously dominated by Grenache, which confers very singular suppleness and roundness. Best savoured young. Grapes from both the young and older vines are harvested by hand and double-sorted at the vine, then all destemmed before about 25 days' traditional fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. Pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation.
