Vieux Télégraphe Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2014

There’s terrific Grenache charm in this suave Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Famille Brunier, owners of Vieux Télégraphe. It’s a beautifully balanced, pure and polished red.

Fun Fact: Piedlong means big foot!

Deep tawny red colour. The elegant bouquet offers pure ripe berry fruit, with ethereal hints of rose, smoky liquorice and wild herbs. The palate is a burst of dark cherry, strawberry and wild raspberry flavours, with layers of black olives, thyme and liquorice. A silky mouthfeel with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Luxurious and complex.

The blend comprises of 90% 70-year-old Grenache Noir and 10% 50-year-old Mourvèdre. The Grenache grapes come from Famille Brunier’s Piedlong vineyard, a stony Piedlong Plateau in the heart of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC area, the highest in the AOC at 128 metres above sea level. The Mourvèdre is sourced from Lieu-dit Pignan, east of Piedlong. The grapes are hand-picked, with double sorting at the vine and a third sorting in the winery. Gentle crushing and selective destemming are followed by at least 30 days of traditional fermentation in concrete and wooden vats. Pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation. Matures for 20–22 months in French oak foudres (60 hl), before bottling without filtration or fining.

Top tip: Don’t rush into this wine, it’ll age a few years more.
