Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2018

Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made from predominantly three grape varieties, Grenache (65%), Syrah (15%) and Mourvèdre (15%), with Cinsault, Clairette and sundry others making up the final 5%. The vines are on average 70 years old and are planted on the celebrated Plateau de la Crau, a site renowned from grape growing in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This terroir imparts a distinctive minerality to the wines. Once at their state-of-the-art gravity flow winery, the grapes are partially destemmed and are fermented in both stainless steel and wood cuves. Matured in large Frenck oak foudres for up to 22 months the wines is bottled unfined and unfiltered and the released after a further 2 years in bottle. Intense colour, tremendous concentration, complexity and velvety smooth flavours are the hallmarks of Vieux Télégraphe and the best vintages will age for 20 years and more.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
