User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Telegraphe 93-96 Rr

Winemaker's Notes:

"Coated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity...96" 11/12 "Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin, but it also has incredible concentration. More massive than I remember from last year, it has put on considerable weight and intensity. Forget it for 3-4 years, and drink it over the following 25-30 years. Kudos to Daniel and Frederic Brunier!...97" WA 10/12 "Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry and lavender, with notes of white pepper and anise adding complexity. Very fresh and focused on entry, then deeper and more brawny in the middle, offering sappy cherry and red fruit preserve flavors. This spicy finish displays superb persistence, very good clarity and intense florality...93-95" IWC 02/12 "The same blend and elevage as the ’09, the 2010 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau shows more black fruit characteristics with beautiful minerality, earth, spice, and pepper on the nose. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that has solid structure, loads of depth and mid-palate concentration, and a very long finish. Certainly, a worthy successor to the ’09, and possibly even matching the fantastic ’07, this brilliant, hugely promising Châteauneuf-du-Pape should have upwards of two decades of prime drinking..93-96+" RR 09/11
