Vieux Télégraphe 1998 - Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau

The estate owes its name to the inventor of the telegraph, Claude Chappe, who installed his first relay towers on the estate in 1821. The estate, which had already been owned by the Brunier family for over a century, was not yet exploited for wine production.

As is often the case in Châteauneuf, the estate is of a respectable size. With its 65ha of vines with an average age of over 65, the estate produces only around 200,000 bottles per year. The yields are therefore very low.

About the 1998 vintage: Parker gave it a mark of 95 pts (which in the 2000s was a really high mark). It is one of the greatest successes in the field of the last thirty years. It must be said that the vintage 1998 is overall very successful throughout the Rhône Valley.

WUAT team tasting notes February 2024: A customer who thought it was fantastic ordered a few more bottles from us. So we had to taste it before it ran out. And what a pleasure it was! Be careful, this is not an “easy” wine. On the nose it offers notes of tobacco, camphor wood, white pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, it is an almost "rustic" wine without excess of sugar or wood. It offers comforting aromas of blackberry jam on a spicy and sweet basis. A balanced wine with present but suave tannins, round but not heavy. We recommend spending two hours in the carafe before tasting.
