  • For this limited production cuvée, the Brunier family (Vieux Telegraphe) culls old-vine Grenache from the les Pialons lieu-dit. Gravity transports the juice through fermentation and the lots are vinified in open tanks for up to a year. Blended, the wine is aged in foudres for another year and bottled without filtering or fining. Roquete's l'Accent is powerful, luscious and elegant.
