About Chateauneuf du Pape 2015 La Crau, Vieux Telegraphe

Vieux Telegraphe is an iconic wine. The Brunier family who owns the estate is legendary in its own right, having been rooted to the enigmatic plateau known as "La Crau" for over one hundred years. The wines of Vieux Télégraphe evoke the concept of terroir in its purest form: they reflect their dramatic climate, the rough terrain that defines the soil, their full sun exposure at a higher altitude, the typicity of the varietals with an emphasis on Grenache, and of course, the influence of their caretakers, the Brunier family. For many, La Crau is Châteauneuf-du-Pape's grandest cru. Every vintage the wine excels, ending up on best of the year and top 100 lists. An exceptional vintage, this 2015 scored 95 points from Wine Spectator who said "This has a lovely, perfumy mix of savory, mint, tobacco, blood orange, cherry and bergamot notes all mixed together, carried by silky but ample structure before ending with a long, mineral- and shiso leaf—infused finish. Finely beaded acidity lets everything hang wonderfully. This should expand and cruise in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2035." and 96 points from James Suckling who said "A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. Try after 2020."
