The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthfeel, and enormous length and richness. This is a brilliant effort from brothers Frederic and Daniel Brunier. Robert Parker

At a perfect drinking stage, this wine has shed some baby fat, and is showing some development with hints of smoke, wet earth, mushrooms and garrigue. The fruit is ripe yet no longer explosive (had same vintage 2 years ago, and fruit was overbearing), there are so many alluring flavors and aromas yet all is in balance with alcohol. Delicious.

A brilliant vintage such as 98, an excellent wine well balanced with beautiful structure, complexity around a fine fruit and garrigue notes, generous it needs time in a carafe to get better - displaying a magnificent it gives nice maturity and a dense wine with power

Nothing like a magnum of Chateauneuf and good live music. Goes well with OAR

A little too young, but curiosity didn't kill this cat.

So bummed. This mag is massively corked. I bet a pristine bottle of this would be tasting great right now.

Decanted for over an hour. Opened up really nicely. Still developing. Primary aromas of black fruits. Jammy. Secondary aromas of forest floor. Very well integrated. Quite long finish.

2007- polarizing vintage & yes, this is ripe and juicy raspberry dancing across the nose & palate. Once it breathes it shows some smoke & pine-like herbal notes which add complexity. Structured, but wonderfully approachable. Great producers manage all vintages and this reflects the best part of 2007. Happy Christmas Eve & Happy Hanukkah to everyone!
