2017 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-Du-Pape La Crau Rouge

2017 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-Du-Pape La Crau Rouge

This classic Châteauneuf opens with a voluptuous aroma of black olive and licorice. On the palate, you'll find a firm backbone of tannin, juicy, brambly fruit, and charming floral notes. Blend: 65% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, Clairette, etc.

Immediately a sense of darker fruit in this vintage. The nose has closed up a little since tasting in barrel. It has some reserved, sanguine notes and an essence-like, raspberry core. Some stones and chalk here, too. Very long and focused palate. The grenache is singing here. Dense but soft and supple tannins, the product of thick, healthy skins. Best from 2025. – 96 points, James Suckling
