Still young and a bit flabby - spice and earth hidden by alcohol.

If the fruit can hold out for the tannins to soften and the abv to integrate this could be a knock out. Very tasty. #vieuxtelegraphe #lacrau #chateauneuf

I really have not enjoyed how CdP have gotten so brutish on the palate. This one is not bad, the vintage likely tempered the palate.

Licorice, red currants, violets and raspberry aromas, the palate is medium bodied, tasting like what a large dose of Grenache should. Good purity, an elegant but persistent finish.

Super clean. The Grenache is playing hide and seek. Good structure, albeit edgy. I'm just stoked that this is clean! Can't wait for the Grenache to poke its head out
