Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Télégraphe 'La Crau' 2006
A classic Châteauneuf blend of around two thirds Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre.
"Very grippy style, with lots of sweet tapenade, tobacco, hot stone and braised chestnut notes weaving through a core of dark currant and fig fruit. There's a nice twinge of lavender on the structured finish. For the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2028." 92+ Robert Parker.
