1996 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #999817 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a cool, dry year, the 1996 Chateauneuf du Pape is a lightly textured, elegant, medium-bodied effort that has pretty notes of sweet red fruits, strawberries, rose petals and cherry blossoms. At 20 years of age, it's still lively and fresh, and offers a Pinot Noir-like level of elegance and purity, and I suspect it has aged as well as it has due to its impeccable balance more so than overt concentration and richness. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Cherry, roasted herbs, earth, licorice and an almost exotically sweet note of marzipan on the nose. Supple in the mouth, with notes of pepper and woodsmoke. Seems fresher than the '97 Vieux Télégraphe, but this is not at all dominated by its acids. Finishes with very good length, and tongue-coating but supple tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/1999)
