Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Télégraphe 'La Crau' 2000
A classic Châteauneuf blend of around two thirds Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre.
"Domaine Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf du Pape 2000: A strong hue of maturity here, matt oxblood tones cutting through the deep red pigment. The nose is also mature, a combination of slightly sweaty roasted fruits, a little barnyard and baked liquorice. The storage for this bottle has been beyond question, first a respected retailer than a cellar with favourable temperatures. The palate has good substance and holds onto its sweet slightly grainy tannins, although there is a slightly raw and youthful side to it. Good fruit, showing a mature and open style, and in the mix a good but slightly disjointed acidity. It is only the finish where there is any real concern, showing here a more tertiary character, meaty and mature. It is five years since I tasted this; it has certainly moved on during that time. From a 2000 Southern Rhône tasting. 17.5+/20" Chris Kissack The Wine Doctor http://www.thewinedoctor.com
