Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2003

Liked this one quite a bit. Showing off the Grenache more and makes for a different experience for older Beaucastels. — 17 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

See previous note from 45 weeks ago. Before tasting this we had finished off the last of a Guigal Côtes du Rhône. The Telegramme was like a CdR with more mid palate fruit, more tar, more savoury and more power. A good but not great wine. — a month ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2004

Gorgeous, traditional and generous.
Not too sweet, not too rustic; right in the middle 🎯
Soft notes of plums, black cherries, beefstew, garrigue, brown spices and a whiff of hearty umami nuances like porcini, sundried tomatoes and vegemite/soysauce.
Well balanced, medium bodied and full of detail and finesse. Great stuff.

Notes from December 2022 still apply. Pale to mid lemon in colour. Aromas of apple pie this time around. A medium to full bodied white - a note of rockmelon (cantaloupe) a good white for winter - Medium minus acid with good length. Drinking at its peak. — 24 days ago
