Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Télégraphe 'La Crau' 2004
A classic Châteauneuf blend of around two thirds Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre.
This wine offers Pure and silky, with raspberry, cocoa, truffle and mineral notes that glide along fresh acidity. Long, silky finish lets the fruit and minerality hang nicely, while the garrigue hangs in the background.
'Spiced cake, cooked bramble fruits, dry tannins that have a tart, almost rasping quality on the palate. Ripe, warm and hearty.' (RH) 16.5/20 www.jancisrobinson.com
