Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe , Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 1985


From one of the most highly rated estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The 1985 vintage is still a complex red wine featuring wood smoke, cigar box and some spice on the nose and palate.

The Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe is one of the most highly regarded of all the estates in the appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the southern Rhône. This 1985 vintage is still exhibiting a fascinating complexity with wood smoke, cigar box and some spice evident on both nose and palate. Red berry fruit shows on the finish. Although 1985 was a hot year in this part of France, leading to early drinking wines full of fruit, this Vieux Télégraphe has continued to impress and is still very worthwhile drinking for fans of mature Châteauneuf-du-Pape with more than a hint of "pinote" which noble wines of this appellation possess in maturity making them somewhat reminiscent of older red Burgundies.
