1998 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau

Red Rhone Blend more

Perfectly nice, but a little unexciting (and from this magnum at least, not as complex as a number of 750ml bottles I've had). I have found lots of bottle variation in this wine, even from the time of release, with (excluding a higher than normal rate of corked bottles) some being like this one, just "good", and others being truly outstanding (4-5 points higher on my "rating" scale).

PnP. Perfect cork and fill from the same case purchased upon release. Light red with clearing at the rim. Classic nose of spice and garrigue; lovely soft mouthfeel with just a touch of unresolved tannins on the finish. Will see how this develops. After a couple of hours this integrates better and shows no signs of falling apart. Excellent drinking now.

After being open about an hour, the nose was sort of reticent, but there was the savory note mentioned in a previous tasting note. I could also sense the alcohol. The wine has a very mature garnet color. On the palate there were notes of cherry, kirsch, licorice and spice.

Rhone Dinner (The Bristol - Chicago, IL): I closed my eyes, and thought to myself, "wow, this is what Chateauneuf-de-Pape smell like?" I opened my eyes and saw the 1998 Vieux Télégraphe. So much brambly red fruit with dried floral notes, and earth. Still had a really nice power to it, too. Was a big fan of this wine...and it has a lot of upside to it, too.

Youthful, medium bodied, fresh, dominated by its cherry and garrigue nose, the wine is well made, but it lacks that extra special something that really carries through.

Drinking like a classic, nicely aged old world wine. Nothing particularly special, but solid. Meets expectations, but nothing more.

WCC 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reds Blind (Dorato's Resturant, Guilderland, NY): [Double-decanted around 10am.] Perhaps the most dark, brooding, and serious wine so far. Big tannic, still somewhat closed. Seems very young, but with great potential. 93-?

Nice light red. Fabulous herbaceous nose (A/A+). Gorgeous soft palate (A-). This reminded me why I love mature CdP, even from so-so vintages...!

Dark fruit and earthy tannins on the mouth with a pleasant long finish. Took about 30 minutes for the wine to pen and develop in the glass. Bricky when just poured out of the bottle.

Clear 18k gold. A little warmth brings out a powerful nose of slightly musky tropical fruit, overripe apple, and acetone. The palate is full and somewhat oily, very ripe white stone fruit, with just enough tart edge to cut any flabbiness. The finish is very long and sweeter, with a hint of botrytis and a little alcohol. Although this wine was fine with fresh salmon cakes and kugel, it is heavier than I prefer with food. Apparently pretty well balanced for the vintage, but I think hardly the best example of the vineyard.

Medium garnet color with some brick towards the rim. Beautifully mature nose of cherries/kirsch, licorice, some pepper, garrigue and some minerality. On the palate there are beautifully spicy notes again, but also some animalic flavors (blood, raw meat). Medium-full body with medium tannin and medium-low acidity. The tannin is a little bit drying. Very good length. A stunningly beautiful CdP, very classic and as many bottles before, a real joy to drink.

from magnum (thanks M/R)--good bricking; medium body; oddly sweet cherry and tobacco; not much in the way of structure or energy--just tired.

Decanted and let rest for one hour plus. Showed hints of being a bad bottle because of a very medicinal and unappealing aftertaste. That feature faded and left us with an ok taste experience.

This is not a wine to drink alongside any other wine. On its own it is idiosyncratically dry, rather alcoholic and curiously enjoyable. Somewhat pale and showing a little age on meniscus but less than I expected. Nose is very savoury and rather developed, but not too old at all. Palate is a bit tough, but I got accustomed to it and enjoyed it very much. I think it has quite a few years ahead of it: I have several bottles left and I'm not in a hurry. An inch and a half left in the bottle for a couple of days showed no deterioration.

This bottle was well stored after purchase when first available.

That's it - just drank my last bottle of 2004 - how sad! This is a pretty classy CNdP with the berry flavours and tannins nicely balanced. It also has a lovely long finish with flavours being enjoyed long after the swallow.
