Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust southern-Rhone Châteauneuf-du-Pape with layers of blueberry, ripe cherry compote, dark plum and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Just keeps on going with layers of ripe dark fruit on the finish. Easy to enjoy now and for the next five years.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape food pairings: rare roast beef bites, rib roast, hearty stews.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Famille Brunier, Domaine Du Vieux Télégraphe Télégramme 2016 is a full-bodied and generous Châteauneuf-Du-Pape from the Rhône wine region and a traditional blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre from vineyards around La Crau. Look for liquid dark plum, dark cherry, raspberry, blueberry, cassis, baking spice and savoury herb flavours finishing smoky and long on the palate. Lots of character. Pair with roast beef. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
