A lovely wine in a vintage that turned out to be quite classic. It has the deep colour of perfectly ripe Grenache, without being inky black. The nose shows aromas of very ripe, almost stewed fruit. It has a light smokiness and a slight hint of sweetness that makes it very approachable, but without any heaviness. Among all these aromas it’s a note of cooked prune that returns after much aeration. ROBERT PARKER 'One of the few Chateauneuf du Pape estates to produce a second wine (a la most Bordeaux chateaux), Vieux Telegraphe's Telegramme Chateauneuf du Pape (100% Grenache) is a delicious, up-front, fruity, medium-bodied, soft effort displaying lots of herb-tinged strawberry and kirsch characteristics. It should drink well for 3-4 years.
