Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge "La Crau", Domaine Vieux Telegraphe 2006 (1.5L Magnum)

A sensational vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape and for Vieux Telegraphe in particular! A vintage that is more enjoyable young than the 2005 because of its balance and charm, yet can easily age for over a decade.

"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." 95/100 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines 2008 (#5)

"Deep red. Raspberry, kirsch and cured meat aromas are complicated by garrigue and hot stones. Nicely focused red fruit flavors possess impressive sweetness and very good depth, finishing with excellent sweetness and length. Note that "La Crau" is always stated on the label and that this is the only cuvee labeled as Vieux Telegraphe." 92-94/100 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
