Dom du Vieux Télégraphe, Piedlong 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The producer of this wine was previously known as Domaine la Roquète. They merged with Vieux Télégraphe in May 2017.
Earthy and spicy on the nose, with all the volume and intensity to be expected from Châteauneuf – especially in 2016. It’s big in every dimension, but still balanced, and the quality of flavour is impressive. (RH)Drink 2019-2031
