2001 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1019722 94 points Wine Spectator

 Textbook, with singed cedar and tobacco leaf, lavender and bay notes weaving through flavors of date nut bread, dried currant and mulled cherry fruit. All of this is harnessed by pebbly tannins that leave a juicy, mouthwatering feel on the finish. A domaine that hasn't missed a beat in quite some time. Drink now through 2021. (JM, Web-2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Shinning for its elegance and purity, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beautiful, complex effort that offers lots of kirsch, black cherries, garrigue and olive, with a darker fruit slant with additional time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, mature, yet still lively and fresh, it has fine tannin, impeccable balance and a great finish. Called a good, not great, year by Daniel Brunier, enjoy this classic Vieux Telegraphe anytime over the coming decade. (JD)  (10/2016)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
