2004 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
With the final blend of Vieux Télégraphe confirmed as 65% old vine Grenache, with Mourvèdre, Syrah and a blend of other Châteauneuf-du-Pape varieties incorporated, the brilliance of this great wine is now evident. While the nose hints at fruit, spice and game, the palate exhibits classic notes of liquorices and leather, and a drive that is not witnessed every year. There is tremendous length, a rolling, silky sensation shows great persistence. Above all it is the texture which singles this wine out, and completely masks its weight. Supple and yet strong, with silky, fine tannins, a sublime wine.
