2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Télégramme”

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
Discount Eligible $57.00
SOLD OUT

At what age do you stop calling a kid a kid? At what age do you stop calling a young-vine cuvée a young-vine cuvée? Here at KLWM we’ve been referring to this cuvée as the Bruniers’ young-vine Châteauneuf for so long that those vines have gone and grown up right under our noses. Their average age is now well over forty. The style is adult and mature, a robust manifestation of fine tannins, dark fruit, and licorice that proves it no longer needs to sit at the kids’ table.

Vintage Chart

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
