Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic red Châteauneuf-du-Pape, very fine and elegant. The best vintages will age for 25 years and more. Grapes are hand-picked, with stringent double sorting at the vine. Gentle pressing and selective destemming, followed by 25-35 days' traditional fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel and wooden vats. Pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation.

Still tight, with the core of cherry and red currant fruit held in check by a mix of lightly firm sandalwood, spice, licorice root and warm stone flavors. Mulled fig and cocoa notes check in on the grippy finish. A rare backward style that will need some cellaring to round into form. Best from 2013 through 2020.

The Brunier brothers have turned out a very fine 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape (what they call a “vintage of freshness”). This classic effort possesses more stuffing than most of its peers. It reveals this estate’s tell-tale notes of earthy garrigue, herbs, licorice and seaweed, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, soft tannins and more depth than many 2008s. Nevertheless, it will not be a long-ager, so readers are encouraged to drink it over the next 5–7 years.
