Télégramme is the Bruniers’ answer to many of the problems that plague modern-day Châteauneuf-du-Pape. I remember visiting a retailer in Portland a number of years ago whose long experience in the trade had led him to pronounce with great confidence the death of the appellation.
That didn’t happen (or at least it hasn’t happened yet), but he did have a valid point: the days of prodigious concentration and alcohol tend to be fading in favor of balance and drinkability at table. In steps Télégramme, a Grenache you can drink rather than pour out like syrup. It helps that a goodly portion of the grapes come from Châteauneuf’s most noble terroir, the plateau of La Crau, adding stoniness to its freshly polished core of fruit. —Dixon Brooke
