2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Never the most youthful looking in the glass, 2001 Vieux Télégraphe shows more brick-red than vibrant purple. Provencal herbs and ultra-ripe, sweet spicy fruit make for heady aromas. The palate shows density and power, though not at the loss of refinement. This is bold and full, with layer upon layer of finely expressed berry fruit. Liquorice-like qualities as well as garrigue notes add to its appeal and a long, driven finish signals what we believe to be the finest vintage of this wine since the exceptional 1990, and yes, that means surpassing the magnificent 1998. High praise indeed, but more than well-deserved.
