Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe La Crau Rouge Châteauneuf-Du-Pape

Wine Description

Coated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity.

Lovely soft fruit with spice, plums, herbs and a touch of leather. Forward in the mouth with soft, ripe tannins, great length and a luscious finish.

    (2004 Vintage) Medium red. Spicy, focused red berry aroma. Brisk strawberry and raspberry flavors are complicated by tangy mineral and pepper notes. Finishes bright and racy, with a zesty redcurrant note and a suggestion of lavender.
