The Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe owes its name to Claude Chappe, inventor of the optical telegraph, who in 1821 installed one of his relay towers on the highest point of the estate. The estate has been in the hands of the Brunier family for more than 100 years, and at the time, the place was considered to be uncultivable, as the density of rolled pebbles made the soil ungrateful. The vineyard is currently managed by the two brothers Frédéric and Daniel Brunier. Situated to the south-east of the appellation on the stony plateau of the Crau, it presents a characteristic terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, made up of its famous pebbles, which store heat during the day to release it at night. This phenomenon allows the grapes to reach a high degree of maturity. In total, 98 hectares are cultivated in AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and 15 hectares in IGP Vaucluse and AOC Ventoux. The estate, which practices a policy of low yields, favours sustainable cultivation techniques. Indeed, the treatments carried out during the growing season respect the rules of organic agriculture, in order to meet two fundamental objectives: zero residue in the wines, and minimal external pollution. All the work in the vineyard, from pruning to leaf removal, is carried out with great care in order to obtain the best possible fruit. After manual harvesting followed by traditional ageing (ageing in concrete vats for 9 months, then in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months), the wine is bottled without filtration. All these efforts, intensified since the beginning of the 1980s, give wines that are both intense and balanced, with aromas of black fruits, herbs of Provence and truffles, peppery and spicy, on a liquorice finish. These wines can be enjoyed from their early youth. Harmonious on tasting, the white wines are fruity and slightly spicy.
