Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Télégraphe 'La Crau' 2003
A classic Châteauneuf blend of around two thirds Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre.
"The 2003 Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf du Pape has turned out well. Deep ruby with some purple nuances, this wine is medium to full-bodied and reveals notes of liquorice, pepper, Asian spices, black cherry, raspberry, and currant, as well as a relatively big, sweet palate impression with moderate tannin in the finish. It is accessible, but will benefit from 2-3 years of aging."
