Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017

Télégramme is Vieux Télégraphe’s second-label Châteauneuf-du-Pape red, made with the grapes of young vines under 30 years old, plus older parcels not located on the Plateaux of La Crau or Piedlong. The blend is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and 4% Cinsault. All grapes are hand-picked, with double sorting at the vine, then a third sorting in the winery. They are de-stemmed, followed by 25-30 days’ traditional fermentation in temperature controlled vats. Ageing is in vats for 10 months followed by foudres for a further 7 months before bottling. The result is a delicious fruit driven Châteauneuf-du-Pape which drinks very well in its youth.
