    2011 VIEUX TELEGRAPHE “Deep ruby. Expressive, powerful aromas of blackberry and cherry are brightened by suave floral and spice notes. Lush and creamy, with sappy dark berry flavors, silky tannins and a gentle lift of acidity. Picks up seductive Asian spice notes with air, finishing sweet and very long. (90-92/100)” - Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar “This beautifully made 2011 offers immediate drinkability, which is unusual for Vieux Telegraphe. A deep ruby color is accompanied by notes of pepper, roasted meats, Provencal herbs, black cherries, black currants, tapenade, seaweed and salty sea breezes. This complex, delicious, full throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 10-15 years. 2012-2027 (90-93/100)” - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
