Domaine de Vieux Telegraphe 2017 La Crau Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Editors' Choice

Vieux Telegraphe is the iconic expression of La Crau, Châteauneuf-du-Pape's famed stony plateau, and this sumptuous, vibrant red is a classic bottling. A blend of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, it's packed with sultry black cherry and blackberry flavors edged by pepper and licorice. Fine, feathery tannins make it approachable in youth, but it's a wine that should improve through 2030 and hold longer still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
