Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

$77.95

#3 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2009. Packed, in a brawny, muscular style atypical for this lush vintage, with a gravelly undertow to the currant paste, braised fig and dark licorice notes. Picks up even more steam on the finish, with grilled mesquite, mineral and garrigue notes and a long, hot stone-filled finish. Wine Spectator

Dark ruby. Quite alcoholic but just the right side of too much. Deep flavors- raspberry, blackcurrant. Good

The second Rhone last Sunday. Earthy loam notes together with ripe Grenache aromas of raspberry and red liquorice although the raspberry notes are much more savoury at 12 years. On the medium bodied palate some Liqueur cherry notes with mild resolved tannins. At its peak - fruit, oak, tannin and acid all in balance. The perfect accompaniment to Roast Lamb and Vegetables. A blend of 65% Grenache 15% Syrah 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault.

Solid and even youthful but unremarkable in a diverse lineup with Peking duck. Definitely lots of Primary fruit and rustic.

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
