From a magum purchased upon release and cellared in pristine condition, this wine was brought to a restaurant for a dinner celebration with friends. Deep ruby and immediately intensely fragrant, it offers blackberry, garrigue, spice box, lavender and leather aromas. Full-bodied, fresh and with medium-weight, sweet tannins, it follows with flavors which mirror the nose. Listed as 14.5%, the alcohol shows no heat. Solid in the middle and very long on the finish, this wine remains youthful but is beginning to show some lovely secondary characteristics as a result of time in the cellar. It should provide pleasure for several more years. Drink now-2024.

Hard not to expect great things from this property. When it comes to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it doesn't get much better.

This wine delivered in spades but took a while to decipher all it's offerings due to it's early release. So complex and integrated. All varieties shine through with each swirl and increased temperature. The Grenache so bold, the Mourvedre so floral and Syrah adding a coating of spice.

Truly a wine to revere. Anyone who can afford it should respect it. Hold it or save for a truly great occasion.

Good cork. One of my favorite wines for its soft tannins and flawless lingering finish. This bottle needed an hour to come together. Tastes like its on the decline but still delicious.

Kinda bananna on the nose but great on the palate. Actually lots of cream and salt. 40% Clariette, 40% Grenache blanc. Savory and powerful palate.

Not as good as other bottles that I've had of the 98 VT. Nothing wrong per se but just didn't hit the heights of the last experience.

Another excellent bottle, this one showing very young, with vibrant dark fruits, raspberry reduction mixed with dried herbs and that VT pepper, but only trace nori/seaweed notes. Lovely mix of fresh, youthful red/black raspberries and garrigue. This is compact on the palate, direct and focused, no fat, with a rather silky mouthfeel. Many CdPs fade early, but here is one that at age twenty is still bright and delicious. Amali, with Bruce, Michel and Stephen V.

Suprisngly soft and nice CnP - ready to drink after a couple of hours of airing. Fruity and flowery on the edge, Not so much power or spice. A good effort to make a modern wine that you can enjoy now while you wait for the V Telegrafe to mature... A promise well done
The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle.

Ruby garnet red. The mature bouquet starts with a lot of herbs and spices, followed by dark berries and bacon. On the palate juicy red and dark berries, salty licorice, mint and some minerals. Good acidity and round and soft tannin with still a pleasant bite. Probably at its peak between now and 2016.

A Pre-Birthday Dinner with the Guys (SY Kitchen, Santa Ynez Valley): Unlike past bottles, this one was overwhelmed by barnyard brett, which never blew off. Drinkable, but barely.

This bottle also has an orange rim and a grenadine color in general. On the nose, it is pretty expressive with notes of cherry fruit and garrigue. On the palate, it has nice kirsch, garrigue, green olive and asain spice flavors. Very nice with some years ahead of it yet.

Now that this bottle has been open for several hours, it has become even more complex and delicious. Just like the previous reviewer's experience, I think the wine benefits greatly from several hours of airtime. It now offers more sweet kirsch, forest floor, and dark cherry chocolate fruit.

I am having the 2nd half of this bottle on day two and it continues to drink nicely. I have increased my score slightly.

Great right out of the gate; quite expressive and lots of range and length. It shut down hard after about two hours in the decanter. Might be wise to hold (or suck it down). 92+

Opened two (then three) '98 Chateauneuf's for a nice roasted chicken dinner at home with the wife and all the boys. This and Vieux Telegraph disappointing so I had to open a third (and the best) -- Beaucastel.

Color: light/medium ruby core -> diffuse garnet rim.

Terrific bottle. Lots of vigor left here, bright red fruits with notes of iodine and peat - very VT - James says Shiso leaf. The tannins are nicely integrated and the wine has a smooth texture in the mouth with an array of flavors atop. Still shows good freshness. Bought on release and cellared for many years, to terrific results. At James and Nancy's.

No formal notes and just for the record. Beautiful wine with good fruits and garrigue, some chocolate and good acidity and tannin. Hope to taste again at a more relaxed moment. Plenty of future in this wine.

My second of these and although very approachable and delicious, IMHO this wine will reward patience. I think 2017 would be a good target date for the next bottle.

Decanted from a magnum for two hours. Wine was brick red, very soft and silky. Although past its peak, it wasn't tired or too old, just not as exuberent as a few years ago. A wonderful wine, but definitely time to drink up.

Out of a magnum. Decanted for 45 minutes. Ruby red with very slight bricking. Fruity nose of raspberries, and piums with a whiff of coffee and even some toasted walnuts. A surprisingly fruity and rich bottle, with mild smoky notes underneath the fruit. The last bottle was not nearly this good.

Some red berry notes such as raspberry on the nose, but a large amount of barnyard and earthy presence, especially forest floor and mushroom. Very rich but elegant. Loved this wine, paired very well with a mushroom in black bean sauce dish served at our wine tasting event.
