Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape -6xbt 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Undoubtedly one of the wines of the vintage despite the failure of its Cabernet<br/>Franc. Unusually the '98 blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Richly<br/>concentrated, this wine displays both wonderful purity of fruit and a fine<br/>expression of terroir.

A powerful, wonderfully toned red. Like a great javelin-thrower. Lovely mineral, berry and violet aromas with hints of new oak. Full-bodied, with big yet silky tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2010. 3,000 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 Vieux Chateau Certan 750ml

A fine offering, the 1998 has closed down, but there is no doubting its fabulous potential. The color is a dense purple. The wine reveals high tannin, huge body, and classy black fruits intermixed with minerals, spice box, cedar, and tobacco. A long, persistent, tannic finish gives this majestic effort a closed but formidable personality. Patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
