Mini-interview and meeting with Daniel Brunier, one of the owners of Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe and winemaker. The Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe is family owned and is vineyard is located in Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the southern Rhone Valley in the south of Frence. Winery…
Daniel Brunier talks about the differences between the grenache in Chateauneuf and the grenache in Gigondas, a wine region not far away – how the climate, exposition and soil make a difference. We taste the 2005 vintage which is a very big and rich vintage. The wine is a blend of grenache, mourvedre, syrah, cinsaut and clairette.
The make a range of wines: Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, a special cuvee called La Roquette to name some.
We also make a quick visit to the winery where pumping over is ongoing (remontage) to aerate the must and improve extraction during fermentation. (And one of the tanks is thoroughly cleaned inside.)
