Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007 which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers boysenberries black cherries black currants nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper) black olives licorice and pepper. This full-bodied meaty thick juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin but it also has incredible concentration. More massive than I remember from last year it has put on considerable weight and intensity. Forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25-30 years. Kudos to Daniel and Frederic Brunier!

Coated with unctuous linzer torte warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors while notes of maduro tobacco mint green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense but well-harnessed through the finish with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4200 cases imported. -JM

The same blend and elevage as the '09 the 2010 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau shows more black fruit characteristics with beautiful minerality earth spice and pepper on the nose. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that has solid structure loads of depth and mid-palate concentration and a very long finish. Certainly a worthy successor to the '09 and possibly even matching the fantastic '07 this brilliant hugely promising Châteauneuf-du-Pape should have upwards of two decades of prime drinking. 93-96+

Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry cherry and lavender with notes of white pepper and anise adding complexity. Very fresh and focused on entry then deeper and more brawny in the middle offering sappy cherry... Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry cherry and lavender with notes of white pepper and anise adding complexity. Very fresh and focused on entry then deeper and more brawny in the middle offering sappy cherry and red fruit preserve flavors. This spicy finish displays superb persistence very good clarity and intense florality. --- Josh Raynolds

From a barrel sample unknown cépage . Darkly colored through to the rim the powerful aromas of dark fruit are bright and vibrant.

Darkly colored through to the rim the powerful aromas of dark fruit are bright and vibrant. This precision carries through to the palate where the blackberry and black cherry flavors are vibrant and focused. Complex and concentrated there is an abundance of fruit here that will offer great texture 2-3 years down the road and should last 20 years easily. An exciting glimpse into the future here!
