Medium red-ruby. Warm, inviting aromas of smoky red fruits, tobacco and black pepper. Bright and gripping on entry, then juicy and brisk on the middle, with slightly medicinal red fruit, mineral and tobacco flavors and somewhat clenched tannins. A restrained Châteauneuf that's currently hiding its flesh. But has a classic structure for aging.
The elegant 2000 Vieux Telegraphe La Crau possesses 14.8% alcohol, along with a deep ruby/purple color, charming, rich, fruitiness, and firm tannin in the finish. With loads of freshness, copious quantities of pepper, seaweed, and black fruit characteristics, and a distinctive minerality, this full-bodied, sweet 2000 requires 2-3 years of cellaring; it should age well for 15-16 years. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
More structured, tannic, and backward than the open-knit 1989 and 1990, the 1988 Vieux-Telegraphe exhibits a healthy dark ruby color, and a subdued but spicy nose of red and black fruits, earth, and Provencal herbs. Medium to full-bodied, restrained but concentrated, this should turn out to be a long-lived Vieux-Telegraphe, lasting through the first 5-6 years of the next century. It is less flattering to drink than either the 1989 or 1990, so readers may want to drink the two younger vintages while waiting for the 1988 to soften.
The 2000 Vieux Telegraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as a big, jammy, black fruit-scented nose with notions of pepper, cherry liqueur, and minerals. While fat and unctuously-textured, with abundant jamminess, high tannin in the finish gives the wine structure and grip. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.
Reserved aromatically, but the wonderful balance is evident as this young Rhône red reveals its mineral, wet earth, delicate plum, mocha, coffee and blackberry character and subtle, ripe tannins. The wet earth and mineral really shine through on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2010.
A beautiful wine is the 2005 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape. A saturated dark ruby, it offers up notes of seaweed wrappers (nori) intermixed with truffle, black raspberry, cherry, and some black currant, pepper, and iodine. Fleshy, full-bodied, with good acidity, moderately high tannins, and a long, rich finish, this wine will require 2-4 years of bottle age then drink well for close to 20 years.
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. Best from 2010 through 2030.
Slightly chalky tannins underpin some deliciously sweet macerated roasted fruit. This Rhone favorite displays great acidity that is balanced and lasting. Cherry Grenache-influenced character. Lovely texture.
