- Vieux Telegraphe, named for the old telegraph tower once situated where the domaine now stands, is nestled on the highest ridge in the Chateauneuf appellation, surrounded by the famous stone fields that resemble lunar landscapes. Henri Brunier's (and now sons Daniel and Fréderic) conviction was that the foundation of their wine's quality stemmed from that stony terrain. A classic.
