Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by the Brunier family, for six generations - since 1891. The estate's vineyards have an average age of 60 and are planted on the celebrated Plateau of La Crau, a site renowned for grape-growing in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This terroir imparts to the wines a highly distinctive minerality, as if they have been filtered through the dense layer of large pebbles left behind when the Alpine glaciers melted, long before the Rhône Valley formed.

SOIL AND SUBSOIL: molasse from the Miocene epoch (1-1.5m in depth) sitting on a thick layer of clay  with a high stone content, and covered by the pebble blanket of Alpine diluvium generally known as “galets roulés”. 

GRAPE VARIETIES: 40 % Clairette, 25 % Grenache Blanc, 25% Roussane and 10% Bourboulenc. 

VINE AGE: 45  years on average. 

VINIFICATION: grapes are hand-picked, with double sorting at the  vine, then a third sorting in  the winery. Pneumatic pressing, then static settling. Fermented in barriques, demi-muids and 30 hl foudres.

MATURATION: on the lees in barriques, demi-muids and 30 hl foudres. Bottled at 1 year.
