Grenache fruit, hint of earth. Old style Châteauneuf, very complete and approachable, but not overly complex. 16.2
Deep red. Captivating aromas of black raspberry, wild rose, Asian spices and smoked meat. Brighter red fruits on the palate, with notes of cola and candied flowers gaining strength with air. Showing more depth, richness and warmth than last year. Finishes with very good grip and an echo of smoke. 90
rating 90 – The outstanding 2007 Telegramme Chateauneuf du Pape (15.8% alcohol) offers notes of kirsch liqueur, spring flowers, and framboise, medium to full body, good acidîty, a beautiful texture, and a luscious, heady finIsh. It is best drunk over the next 5-6 years.
90-93 Vivid red. Assertive aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, fresh lavender and minerals; there\’s a pinot-like vibrancy here that I like. Brisk and sharply defined, offering tangy red berry flavors, silky texture and good mineral snap. The finish is gently sweet and impressively pure. This wine is made from young vines from the Bruniers\’ Vieux Telegraphe and Domaine La Roquete.
