2005 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1030912 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the most age-worthy cuvees in the appellation, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape was gorgeous on this occasion, showing classic iodine, seaweed and peppery herbs intermixed with layers of sweet currant, plum and blackberry fruits. Full-bodied, powerful and ripe, with a still youthful profile, this beauty won’t hit full maturity for another 3-4 years, and should hold for a decade or more after that. (JD) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is dense and chewy, but not tiring to drink, thanks to fresh acidity and an edgy, gravelly feel that drives the blackberry, currant and sweet spice notes. The long finish has great briary grip, with notes of garrigue and hot stone checking in. Best from 2010 through 2030. *No. 5 Top 100 Wines of 2008, Highly Recommended* (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, bright red. Explosively perfumed nose offers seductive raspberry, kirsch and floral scents, with a suave mineral underpinning. Extremely fresh, with precise red fruit and floral pastille flavors strongly reminiscent of a broad-shouldered Pinot Noir. Finishes with outstanding clarity, sweetness and persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2008)
