Another awesome vintage for this classic Chateauneuf that should not be missed. This is an amazing vintage to have in magnum!

"One of the top wines of the vintage, as well as one of the longest lived Chateauneufs out there, it was firing on all cylinders this night and was pure kirsch liqueur, seaweed, roasted herbs, and licorice on the nose with a pure silky, voluptuously textured palate. I wouldn't be surprised to see it close down over the coming year or so, but no regrets with this bottle." 98/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin, but it also has incredible concentration. More massive than I remember from last year, it has put on considerable weight and intensity. Forget it for 3-4 years, and drink it over the following 25-30 years. Kudos to Daniel and Frederic Brunier!" 97/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

"Coated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4,200 cases imported." 96/100 Wine Spectator

"The Vieux Telegraphe blends density and nonchalance: cut grass mixed with flint, a green-olive nose laced with fresh fruits. Well-defined structure on the palate: it's ample, ethereal, almost dizzying; notes of Zan liquorice candy currently dominate, with a natural mix of finesse and richness. The tannins are in evidence, though note over-assertive, and add a hint of salinity." Daniel Brunier, Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe
