La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Earlier this year when I was first getting acquainted with the 2016 vintage from the Southern Rhône, I made the comment that it reminded me of the 2010 vintage. I’m now more convinced than ever that it is one of the most classical vintages of the last twenty years and will drink well for decades...and 2017 might be nipping at it’s heals. Anyway, let’s talk a little bit about this wine. I’ve never been a huge Vieux Telegraph guy, despite the near universal adoration it received from others. Maybe it’s because it’s such an archetypal wine of the region and therefor sort of bores me. But on its own, in 2016, without other CdP’s on the table, this was really very good and worthy of its merits. Lucious bramble fruit and minerals with black pepper and a lovely lavender/garrigue mix. The tannins are firm but fine, like other 2016’s. And there’s good acid too. Very well balanced. — 18 days ago

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Definitely too young... but..

Been a while since I have had this wine, or a CNdP in general actually... now realizing a) i need to drink more southern Rhône wine and b) the Brunier family makes some killer wines. On the nose, dried rose petals, black fruit and some leather. In the mouth, really expansive red and black fruit, rose hips, bright acidity and some moderate tannins. You can slightly feel the higher levels of alcohol. Long finish. Very well made wine, but needs about 5-7 years to come together.
