2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe La Crau 2006
From the outstanding 2006 vintage and scoring 94/100 Parker points, "One of the more youthful wines in the retrospective, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau from the Brunier brothers is a head-turner. Possessing the ever present seaweed/nori character that I almost always find in this cuvee, it has a beautiful core of currants, crushed rocks, tapenade and licorice-like aromas and flavors. Made from 65% Grenache, 15% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah, and the balance Cinsault all from the famed La Crau lieu-dit this is as traditional and classic Chateauneuf du Pape as you can get. Its a gorgeous wine that has another 10-15 years of longevity." Drink now - 2031.
