A Châteauneuf du-Pape seriously dominated by Grenache, which confers very singular suppleness and roundness. Best savoured young.
The final blend from tank of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Telegramme boasts delicate, floral aromas and hints of strawberries and raspberries. It's full-bodied but silky and tender, very charming, with decent length. I haven't been a huge fan of this cuvée in the past, but this is pretty darn good.
The quality of the entry-level cuvée from this estate has soared over the past decade and the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Télégramme is unquestionably an outstanding wine. Revealing a deep ruby/purple color as well as Provençal notes of spiced blue fruits, ground pepper, garrigue, and violets, it has medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of mid-palate depth (which can be lacking in a number of 2018s), notable balance, and just a delicious, Provençal, ready to go style. It's ideal for enjoying anytime over the coming 7-8 years.
