| 67 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) RH o N e T he Brunier family credits the vineyard for their achievements, as they own a large single block of the renowned lieu-dit l a Crau. Their deep-rooted vines, at an average age of 55 years old, are protected by a stony top layer and then nurtured through the clay-enriched soil beneath. Tradition carries on in the cellar and through to the blend, which for both the Rouge and the Blanc is a classic mix of Rhone v arieties. If in search of a Châteauneuf du Pape for the ages, there's no better option than v ieux Telegraphe. ✦ Vieux Telegraphe Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2015 W a 94 » $69 "... features delicate floral scents and ample cherry and licorice aromas… full-bodied and almost creamy in texture... then it ends powerfully..." Joe Czerwinski (147871) Vieux Telegraphe Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2015 W a 95 » $59 "...The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is the finest example of this cuvée I can remember tasting… drink it today, as well as cellar it for two decades." Jeb Dunnuck (1470371) T O La ST TH e aG e S Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the likes of Clos des Papes, Beaucastel and Rayas, we find Vieux Telegraphe. Renowned for their long-lived and traditional style of Châteauneuf du Pape, Vieux Télégraphe now enjoys the status of a collector's item. Much of their success is derived through a consistent level of excellence year after year.
