Wine of the Week #1528: 2013 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Telegramme”
“Telegramme” is the “2nd wine” of Vieux Telegraphe – one of the noble names of France’s southern Rhone Valley and one of the great wine estates of France. Vieux Telgraphe produces serious wines that are a must-have for serious wine collectors. Their flagship bottling from at Vieux Telegraphe comes from the famous “La Crau” site – a vineyard that would undoubtedly be amongst the very top “Grand Crus” if the Rhone used the same vineyard designation system found in Burgundy.
Spot Offer #103: la Bastide St Dominique Cotes-du-Rhone
Deep brilliant purple colour, with bright raspberry, strawberry and black currant fruit upfront, framed by silky mouth-coating tannins. Elegant and medium to full-bodied, this wine has a richness and concentration which cry out for fattier cuts of meat like beef or lamb. The finish is long and clean with lingering notes of cedar, white pepper and southern French garrigue. Drink now – or over the next 3-4 years.
