gentleman_sommelier My star sell of the day!
Châteauneuf du Pape, Vieux de Telegraph, La Crau, blanc 2012.

A wonderful bottle...this really shows so well for the vintage and is a wine that does a great job of showing how there can be weight in flavor but not on the palate. Scents of tropical fruits, and floral notes dominate the nose with a bit of smoekyness hidden in the background. On the palate this medium bodied wine offers flavors of quince, star fruit, pineapple, melon, peach, honeysuckle, with hints of honey and lots of minerality with medium acidity and a long finish, I'd say a little oily ~ beeswax texture to it.
Can definitely age a little more. Would love to see this vintage in 7-10yrs bottle ageing.
As far as I found out 40%Clairette 30% Grenache Blanc 20% Rousanne and 10% others (picpoul, bourboulenc and more)
This vintage underwent Malolactic Fermentation.

noe_fy Dimanche au cimetière de Belleville... Où l'on découvre que M. Gaumont y repose et que des actrices à la filmographie discrète y sont enterrées.
