Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-Du-Pape La Crau Blanc 2013

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is another outstanding white from this estate. Made from 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache, 15% Roussanne and the rest Bourboulenc, all from La Crau, it's a layered, classic white from appellation that has plenty of pear and stone fruits, white flowers and big minerality in its medium-bodied, seamless, yet concentrated profile. While certainly beautiful now, it will age gracefully for decades.
Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
Rather perfumy up front, with savory, mint and incense notes leading the way for silky cherry and raspberry coulis flavors. The finish is lined with subtle tobacco, warm stone and floral hints, ending with a light balsam twinge. This should put on some weight with age. Best from 2017 through 2026.

Winery: Domaine Du Vieux Telegraphe

Varietal: White Rhone Blend

The aromatic and deliciously flavored blended white wines of France's Rhone region have gone down in history as some of the finest in the world. The careful blending process has been gradually perfected over the centuries, and today, it is mainly Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc varietal grapes which are used in the production of the blended white wines of the Rhone. These grapes work together beautifully, with all but Grenache Blanc holding delightfully fruity and floral notes, full of summery flavors of honeysuckle and peach, and a relatively low acidity. The Grenache Blanc, on the other hand, is an acidic grape with a high sugar content, and is used in most blended Rhone wines to add body and length to the blend, something which is admired by vintners and wine enthusiasts around the world.

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
