With Over two decades of aging the 2000 La Crau offers a varied bouquet of dried fruit, garrigue, and black olives.

Vieux Telegraphe isn't just one of the gems in Kermit Lynch's portfolio. It's one of the great wines of Chateauneuf du Pape, one of the great wines of the world.

The extreme environment–stone, sun and wind–makes a special wine. You can taste all the elements. And with time, it evolves layers of flavor and a mellow core that is as seductive as any of the old world's great wines.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"Medium red-ruby. Warm, inviting aromas of smoky red fruits, tobacco and black pepper. Bright and gripping on entry, then juicy and brisk in the middle, with slightly medicinal red fruit, mineral and tobacco flavors and somewhat clenched tannins. A restrained Chateauneuf that's currently hiding its flesh. But has a classic structure for aging." -Vinous

RP 91
"The elegant 2000 Vieux Telegraphe La Crau possesses 14.8% alcohol, along with a deep ruby/purple color, charming, rich, fruitiness, and firm tannin in the finish. With loads of freshness, copious quantities of pepper, seaweed, and black fruit characteristics, and a distinctive minerality, this full-bodied, sweet 2000 requires 2-3 years of cellaring." -Robert Parker


D 95
"Slightly deeper in hue than La Nerthe, but the same depth of colour as Pégau. This wine has, remarkably enough, retained wild flower and lavender notes with a falling honeyed sweetness, too. On the palate, it has better volume and force than La Nerthe, with lower acidity and richer tannins. This is a very complete wine at present, with notes of thyme and meaty umami framing the refined, stony fruits."
