Winemaker's Notes

Vignobles Brunier's second-label Châteauneuf-du-Pape red "Telegramme" made with the grapes from the estates younger vines. The more approachable of the wines, the fragrant nose exudes aromas of fresh red fruit and garrigue. Juicy, fresh, direct, and seductive this wine offers flavors of raspberries, black cherries, anise, with a finish full of fruit and warm minerality.

Blend: 90% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries and garrigue on the fragrant, high-pitched nose. Juicy and precise, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes soft and supple, with no obvious tannins and good cling.

Range: 88-91 Points"
91 Points

"Juicy, with a shiso leaf note framing the core of steeped raspberry and black cherry fruit, offering notes of anise, savory and warm stone on the finish. Not dense, but this shows appealing focus and perfume through the finish."
