Châteauneuf Du Pape, Southern Rhône

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Oh hell complex and juicy and fruity as f. Undercurrents of a mineral base. Picture those rocks that are mostly almost black but there is a speckle or so of white and the mineral nature and it ballasts cocky-ass raspberries like this wine has an attitude. So damn good hope my (not so genius) tasting of a half bottle holds up. One last genius-ish thought: picture a newsies boy, cap and all doing a heel click while a Brooklyn winemaker toasts an old school french winemaker and that is your prettiness. I’ll pour it all into my Zalto. — 13 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2012

This maybe stole the show in a crowd of 2012 CDP including a couple regular/reserve verticals. Explosive flavors that lingered. Really beautiful. — 6 days ago

Le Secret des Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

Amazing flavors of earth, cranberry, and grape. A wine that expresses its terroir. I received it as a gift, so its high price did not affect me. Should I have waited at least 5 years before opening? Probably. Spectacular. — 3 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Lazaret

Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Rhone Blend

Beautiful and subtle fall harvest flavors like an apple pie just Bering put in the oven. Held together by a nice mineral core. Developed in the glass with each dip. Certainly not a powerhouse , whispers rather than screams. — a day ago

Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1998

Very nice overall, though I think the tannins are one level too pronounced at this stage. Suggest not decanting. But deep dark dried red fruit on the palate. Some acid but would have liked a bit more. — a day ago

@Pooneet Kant ‘98 a hot vintage, for me the vintage that started me turning away from most CDP producers

@Ira Schwartz I hear you. I wish I could trade my CdPs for some Cote-Rotie.
