2003 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape
I have tasted Vieux Telegraphe back to '85, at a private tasting led by the winemaker. The wines have incredible structure and longevity. At peak 10-12 years post vintage.
Am I sucker for marketing, or what? The website is sex-ay, and who couldn't love that nostalgic label - a jack. Yes, ro-zay, but haven't we gotten over that "i don't drink pink" snobbery yet?
CdP is a beautiful town/area and produces consistently great wines. Clos des Papes is a stand-out in a high-quality crowd. The best way to get this wine is to go to Provence yourself and buy it!
