Between 1978 and 2007, this 1998 is the greatest Vieux Telegraphe that was produced...It has finally emerged, and notes of iodine, seaweed, black currants, incense, and sweet cherries as well as hot rocks jump from the glass of this full-bodied, powerful wine. It possesses considerable elegance and purity, along with loads of raspberries and incense, in a round, juicy, rich style that is just emerging from the closet...Approachable now, it will continue to evolve for another 15-20 years. Bravo! Robert Parker

98v in magnum. No doubt who or what you're drinking. The right amount of funk w/ dense dark fruits layered w/ supple tannin, a hint of herbs and smoked meat.

One of the best older Châteauneuf I've ever had the chance of trying, so much beautiful spice-box characteristics, floral intensity for days, but also so much decomposing undergrowth, not for someone who doesn't dig Brett.
