Tasting Note:

Long, seamless and refined, this shouts grand terroir. There is nothing made or manipulated here, just pure class. More generous and open than Vieux Télégraphe usually is and despite its wonderfully elegant, engaging, gourmand forest berry, cherry and sweet red grenachey fruit, there is still just a suggestion of something held in reserve - the classic mark of Vieux Télégraphe.
