Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc la Crau 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is slightly denser with a deep ruby/plum/purple color followed by notes of crushed Provencal herbs, framboise, kirsch, licorice, pepper and nori (the seafood wrapper used in sushi restaurants). Full-bodied with good acidity and a distinct, earthy/underbrush character. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate"I also had a wonderful 2010 Vieux Télégraphe. The winery has a wonderful reputation. This vintage is still very young but it’s really well balanced. Rich and fine. Strong and elegant at the same time." Angéline Templier, French winemaker at the matriarchal Champagne house of J. Lassalle, as quoted in the NY Times on 12/29/12.

Tight and dark on the nose, with hints of old wood and cloves along with a dry earthiness, all lurking under blackberry fruit topped with hints of pepper and menthol. Smooth and a bit matte in the mouth, with some dry tannins embedded in a core of plummy fruit that’s framed with hints of meat, coffee and sweet spices. The mouthfeel is a bit foursquare here, with nice black cherry fruit on the finish. 88pts

From a barrel sample, unknown cépage . Darkly colored through to the rim, the powerful aromas of dark fruit are bright and vibrant. This precision carries through to the palate where the blackberry and black cherry flavors are vibrant and focused. Co... Chuck Hayward.

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.
