2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
Grenache was the star of the 2000 vintage, creating a velvety Vieux-Télégraphe. Terrific warmth and ripeness on the nose evokes thoughts of languid summer days lying out in the hot sun. This leads on to a display of red and black fruits, spice, leather and warm earth on the palate. The impressive finish has soft tannins and reveals an underlying structure hidden by the hedonistic, mouthfilling mid-palate. There is easily another 10 years lifespan to this wine, but the freshness and ripe tannin make it one that will give tremendous satisfaction in its youth.
