Pure and silky, with raspberry, cocoa, truffle and mineral notes that glide along the fresh acidity. The long, silky finish lets the fruit and minerality hang nicely, with garrigue in the background. Should blossom in the cellar. *#20 Top Wines of 2007, Highly Recommended* (JM)
Also classic and aging gracefully, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape is a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling effort, especially in the vintage. Kirsch, blackberry, garrigue, nori (seaweed/sushi wrapper which I seem to always find in this wine) and ample crushed-rock notes all round out the bouquet and on the palate, it’s nicely concentrated, with fine tannin and integrated acidity. One of the benchmark, traditionally run estates in Chateauneuf du Pape, Vieux Telegraphe made an impressive red and white in 2004, both of which are youthful and have another decade of longevity.

Dark red. A strong floral quality accents ripe blackberry, kirsch and licorice aromas. Very sweet and impressively suave, with ripe cherry and dark berry flavors nicely framed by supple tannins. Finishes long and juicy, with terrific staying power. (JR)
This is packed with briary blackberry and cherry flavors, along with spicy, leathery notes of game, anise and white pepper. It feels warm and expansive as it fills the palate with its huge, ripe depth. It's a massive wine, and may develop more complexity with a few years in the cellar.
Very rich and subtle - like a refreshing cup of tea. Tannins nicely rounded - lovely balance. Bit of alcohol on the finish but a great texture. And some freshness. (JR) 18/20
