It had an offensive nose. Very bitter. Not a good wine.
Rating 85 .Somehow disappointing. Strong vegetal nose and taste. Tannins slightly bitter. Full body long finish. Smell is to annoying for me to warrant a better rating.
I found this Cab a bit restrained, with no hard edges. Very soft tannins, a pleasant nose, and controlled fruit with some nice herbal notes. Very easy drinking.
I had this with dinner a few weeks ago. Overall this is an OK wine. There were good citrus flavors as well as some tropical fruit, but for me it was a bit too grassy. I know the southern hemisphere produces a lot of grassy SB, but I have had some from this region (Casablanca Valley) that were not quite so overpowering.
floral good balance, some crispyness, nice delicate white fruits aromas very nice with lobster ravioli
Amazing handling of French oak... so present yet so elegant... nectarine, pineaple, apple, tinges of citrus... some malolactic fermentation and lees... which give the very elegant buttery characters... it is a hybrid of old and new world... would suit charcoal grilled scallops with citrus/cream sauce... 91/100
It's a big wine, elegant, enough fruits to carry the American Oak (?), white pepper, you almost need cutlery to get through the wine... 92/100

This is dense and chewy, but not tiring to drink, thanks to fresh acidity and an edgy, gravelly feel that drives the blackberry, currant and sweet spice notes. The long finish has great briary grip, with notes of garrigue and hot stone checking in. Best from 2010 through 2030.
A very grippy style, with lots of sweet tapenade, tobacco, hot stone and braised chestnut notes weaving through a core of dark currant and fig fruit. There's a nice twinge of lavender on the structured finish. For the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2028.
Deep red. Raspberry, kirsch and cured meat aromas are complicated by garrigue and hot stones. Nicely focused red fruit flavors possess impressive sweetness and very good depth, finishing with excellent sweetness and length. Note that “La Crau” is always stated on the label and that this is the only cuvee labeled as Vieux Telegraphe.
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 Chacirc;teauneuf thatrsquo;s currently hiding its flesh. But has a classic structure for aging.

Opaque ruby core, slightly lighter rim. Bold aromas of herbal tinged blueberry and raspberry notes. Concentrated, juicy dark fruit flavors with decent acidity finishing with a tart cranberry note, herbs and a touch of mocha. John Perry. A Proprietary Blend wine from in Chile. 2006 Santa Rita Merlot Reserva 750ml
When Châteauneuf-du-Pape became France's first AOC, in 1936, Vieux Télégraphe had already been in operation for nearly 40 years. Today, brothers Daniel and Frédéric Brunier farm the domain's 173 acres located in the appellation's famed La Crau sector. The wine is a blend of 65 percent Grenache with 15 percent each of Syrah and Mourvédre and a dash of Cinsault, Clairette and others, all sourced from vines averaging 60 years of age.
