“Chateauneuf-du-Awesome!”

A Chip Off The Old Block!

By David Gettenberg

Today's feature is a tremendous value for the Châteauneuf aficionado.

A little due diligence goes a long way: the 2015 Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the 2nd label of famed Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe (at $75 per bottle), one of Châteauneuf's top five producers.

The "Télégramme" bottling, featured today, was born out of an ill-fated 2002 vintage, where Vieux Telegraphe's famous "La Crau" fruit was declassified and named "Télégramme." So delicious - even in an off vintage - the Domaine has made a Télégramme bottling ever since.

That's great news, especially in a stunning vintage like 2015, where a rising tide lifts all boats. Good in any vintage, it is simply stunning in 2015, warranting the title, Châteauneuf-du-Awesome!

The elegance and velvety texture make “Télégramme” easy to appreciate in its youth, with rich, generous, red fruit, uncharacteristic freshness, and beautifully integrated tannins. Its finesse and drinkability make it the Châteauneuf-du-Pape of choice for restaurant sommeliers and for wine lovers who do not have a cellar for aging.

Whether you love Rhone reds, Châteauneuf-du-Papes, or simply good wine, this red should not be missed.

Enjoy!
