- Cellar 4 - 5 years (2012-2013)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
This wine needs some time to open, so we suggest either a decant or a couple of hours with out the cork. Medium body, with crimson mauve colour and crimson mauve hue. Top note of spice and stewed fruit followed by confectionary, raspberry and spice. The nose does not stop there but continues to evolve with aromas of liquorice, blackberry and white pepper emerging. Fine dry, slightly chalky tannins. Flavours of vanilla, raspberry and confectionary evolve – multi layered – showing elegance and style with complexity. Some earthy truffle end notes. Excellent balance. Very long aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years (2011-2012)
Certainly Vieux Telegraphe has acquitted itself well in these two vintages with the 2004 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape boasting big, smoky, peppery, garrigue notes intermixed with black cherry, licorice, smoke, and sweet currants. The wine is ripe and full-bodied with decent acidity and some mineral notes. Daniel Brunier stated it actually tips the scales at 15% alcohol, which is high for this vintage. It should drink well for 12-15 more years.
