Editorial Reviews for Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Crau Côtes du Rhône
This smells stemmy and composty, all feral with iron and green pepper and even a touch of celery. Fairly nicely balanced, rich and broad with sufficient acidity to perk things up a touch on the palate. There’s some nice fruit here as well, clear with both mineral and very gentle vegetal tones accenting the blueberryish fruit on the mid-palate that becomes more obvious on the finish. The finish is a touch short and tough, though the blueberry fruit and violet nuances do show some aromatic lift. Hopefully time will help this because today it is a bit ordinary at best. 84pts
Deeply flushed in appearance, the wine presents an overt nose of non-fruit elements: leather, buffalo jerky and North African spices. Cranberries, red cherries, plums and potting soil chime in on the palate. The mouthfeel is soft but balanced with an easy-going juiciness. The excellent balance helps the flavors hold on through a medium-finish. 13% abv
Dark red-more-than-purple in the glass. Oaky and smokey nose. Very pleasant on the tip of the tongue. Slight fruty sweetness--plums. As the wine travels through the palate tannis pop up along with some tartness. Very nice lingering finish. I would suggest is that this is not a wine for long aging, although it is an emminantly drinkable wine right now. US$18.99 at Costco.
89 points: Wonderfully fragrant, with spiced currant, sweet aromatic wood, and a bit of camphor. The palate is bold, with anise and licorice over roasted cherry.The palate flavors dance around with achoholic energy. It has a good balance with fine tannins that support, and later coat the mouth.
Winemaker's Notes: Alcohol: 12.5 % Acidity: 5 g/l RS: 2.8 g/l Content: 0,75 l This is an excellent example of typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner: a dry and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon. All this underlined by the spice of white pepper and ripe acidity
Great with meat and spice. Bold flavors.
Nose of ripe cassis withhints of candied cherry and currant. Some very slight eucalyptus and sweet oak vanilla. On the palate, it's rich and dry. Ripe cassis, currant, black plum and black cherry with some light cocoa and oak spice. Good acid balance to this so it should age and progress nicely with a few more years' aging. I think Franciscan always delivers a solid moderately priced, good value Napa cab. 86 pts.
Lightest in the glass from tasting, but dense in flavor. [From "Chateauneuf du Pape & Friends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 15 September 2013.]
External Reviews for Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Crau Côtes du Rhône
Castillon is one of the best parts of the of the Côtes de Bordeaux; the wines are rustic and complex, an excellent complement to slow-cooked winter meals with lots of terrific herbs and spices. The Château du Baradis shows off to perfection the black fruit, spice and earth for which the region is famous. A robust, hearty alternative to your favorite Rhône; try this with braised lamb or pot roast.
Composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault aged in cement tanks, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire exhibits knock-out, explosive aromas of jammy red and black fruits intermixed with truffles, Provencal herbs, licorice and barbecue smoke. This deep, rich, full-bodied effort is one of the most voluptuously-textured, concentrated wines I have tasted from Francoise Mayard. It should drink well for 10–12 years.
Great value in a rich, full-flavored red from the Côtes du Rhône. Lots of pepper and currant notes. Serve with roast pork dishes.
The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Reserve (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault) exhibits a leafy/garrigue/Provencal character intermixed with raspberry and black cherry fruit. The sweetness of the tannins, plump, medium-bodied style, and touch of pepper result in a classic Côtes du Rhône to drink over the next several years.
A light-bodied red, terrific for soups, salads and sandwiches, in addition to before-dinner sipping. Boasts bright red fruit and herbal notes. Food pairing: poultry, seafood, pasta Flavor type: traditional Body type: light-medium Finish: elegant
Intensives Granatrot. Komplexes und reiches Aromenspiel in der Nase. Kraftvoll und gut strukturiert im Gaumen. Eine saftige und einladende Cuvée mit reifenFruchtnoten, einem eleganten runden Körper und einem nachhaltigen Abgang.
Famed Bordeaux “garagiste” Jean-Luc Thunevin has a hand in the assembly of this over-achieving Merlot-based red. Darkly colored and deeply scented with coffee, bitter chocolate, and cedar aromas, the flavors are densely-knit, hinting at forest berry and black cherry. Barrel aromas and tannins could use a couple of years to integrate.
