Tasting Notes

"The 2013 Piedlong is a spectacular showing from the Brunier Family. It instantly opens with gorgeous aromas of dark cherries and black plums, layered with exotic spices, lavender and fresh minerals. This continues to impress on the palate with its wonderful richness and depth, backed by beautifully concentrated flavors of dark fruits, spices and lavender, which carry on well into the finish. Overall, this is a stunning wine which is already extremely appealing, and also shows the potential to evolve for years to come. Composed of 90% Grenache from the Piediong plateau with the addition of 10% Mourvèdre from the district of Pignan"

The Producer

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

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