    September 20, 2020 - A wine I respect but have never been a fan of. The flavors are like a mix of dried figs, sweet strawberies, kombu, and bitter herbs. It is a combination that is more interesting than tasty.

    July 8, 2020 - Dark, serious, and mature character. Aromas of bandaid, kombu, dried brown figs, dried cherries, and garrigue. Dense and murky on the palate, with low acidity and moderately rough tannins. Missing a sensation of red fruit sweetness.

    This is not one of my favorite vintages of Vieux Télégraphe. It has exceptional profundity, but it is far from delicious to my tastes. I will be interested to see how this wine ages because it has unresolved weight yet it already tastes mature.

    May 20, 2020 - 3rd of 4 bottles, last consumed 8 months ago.
    Delicious, fragrant, lithe, refreshing, and satisfying.
    Red fruited, pepper, garrigue, moist soil, and cured meats.
    Drink now through 2022 or so.
