Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer DOMAINE DU VIEUX TÉLÉGRAPHE
This highly sought-after blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and 4% Cinsault seems remarkably ripe, supple and accessible today. This is the magic appeal of Télégramme being the second wine of Vieux Télégraphe. It has a deep intense purple colour and an elegant, gently spicy, expansive, ripe plum-cherry puree nose with some sandalwood-cedar notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, fairly extracty, harmonious, faintly spicy, intense, bright, harmonious, rounded, ripe plum-cherry-cranberry-casss flavours with a lingering, gently cedary, sandalwood-tinged, vibrant, smoke-tinged finish. Delicious now - wonderfully textured and quite ready-to-drink. Aged 15-16 months in French oak foudres (30-60 hl) and bottled without filtration or fining, this blend has 15.5% alcohol and 1.8 g/L residual sugar with lot number L21132 on the back label.
