2007 Vignobles Brunier Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe La Crau
Keeping an eye on my Vieux Télégraphe, in case anyone tries to steal it. Red cherries, currants, black cherries, and blackberry preserves. Green and black olives. Black pepper dusting. Anise and bay leaf. Dry earth. All on the nose. Lots of warmth from the alcohol and great acidity on the palate. Starts with tart red cherries and juicy black cherries. Licorice notes throughout the palate. Tastes almost like a not-too-sweet black cherry pie. Fuller and darker as the wine opens - more preserves and leather with a peppery finish.
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
