Chateauneuf du Pape 2009 La Crau, Vieux Telegraphe
Vieux Telegraphe is an iconic wine, sourced entirely from the estate La Crau vineyard, every vintage it excels, surpassing even the high expectations of this esteemed appellation. The 2007 vintage was selected number three on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009! 2009 was another outstanding vintage in the Southern Rhone and this '09 scored 94 points in the Wine Spectator who said "This is crammed with fruit, spice and structure, as braised fig, plum skin, cassis and anise notes wrestle with roasted apple wood, melted red licorice and tar for now. The embedded grip should carry the finish until this assimilates fully. Best from 2014 through 2024." Limited!
