Vieux Télégraphe is without a doubt one of the Rhône's great estates, which is now run by 6th generation Fredec and Daniel Brunier, descendants of founder, Hippolyte Brunier. Today the Domaine occupies 70ha on the stony plateau of Le Crau to the east of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wines of Vieux Télégraphe are true classics, but Piedlong is a passion project of the family coming from the Piedlong plateau of CNDP. Robust and earthy with strong personalities and a great track record of longevity in the cellar. The reds are led by Grenache with Mourvedre and Syrah and are generally aged in concrete and foudres.

Tasting Note:
A wine made up on the Piedlong plateau with 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre which aids to give structure, and spice characters. This 2017 Piedlong is actually quite elegant and brilliant! Loads of wild herbs, violets, ripe raspberries, crisp cranberries, exotic spices and garrigue note. Super silky and plush on the palate, just as the 15 showed, before finishing long and complex. Another great wine from the Telegraph stable which will keep for 10+ years. 
There will be no 2018 as the grapes had a tough time, so grab it now while you can.

94 points Wine Spectator
'Outer quote mark Seductive, with singed mesquite and incense notes leading the way for a ripe, silky and refined core of raspberry coulis, steeped plum, rooibos tea and sanguine flavors. The long, persistent finish delivers a subtle mineral edge. Rather suave. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2038. Inner quote mark (5/2020)'

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Long finish.
