2020 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe ‘La Crau’ Chateauneuf-du-Pape 6L
Winemaker Notes: This classic Châteauneuf opens with a voluptuous aroma of black olive and licorice. On the palate, you'll find a firm backbone of tannin, juicy, brambly fruit, and charming floral notes.
James Suckling - "Such a deep and meaty nose with a slew of wild-herb, savory and subtle balsamic notes. Then comes the expansive and very concentrated palate , which reveals so many spicy nuances as it rolls over the palate, the stunning fine tannins pushing the finish out even further. A grenache-based blend from 60-year-old vines. Range: 96-97"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Tasted as a tank sample of the final blend, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau is a blend of approximately 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties, with about 30% whole bunches used in the ferments. Marked by ripe cherries and hints of complex garrigue notes on the nose, it's full-bodied but also really elegant, with fine-grained, silky tannins, ample concentration and a long, surprisingly crisp finish. Range: 93-95"
