Winemaker's Notes

Number 20 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007!

The Vieux Télégraphe Rouge invariably has a beautiful color, an earthy nose, but one of freshness, lively and promising. One finds freshness in the mouth, nervy and lightly mentholated. At the same time, it is suave and rich on the finish. The tannins are supple and ripe with no dryness. The end of the tasting is very clean and woody, rich with a light licorice taste.

Food Pairing: With its structure and complexity this red wine will go well with game, lamb, or risotto with wild mushrooms cooked in a red wine sauce.

"Pure and silky, with raspberry, cocoa, truffle and mineral notes that glide along the fresh acidity. The long, silky finish lets the fruit and minerality hang nicely, with garrigue in the background. Should blossom in the cellar. Best from 2008 through 2025."
