Between 1978 and 2007, this 1998 is the greatest Vieux Telegraphe that was produced.

It has taken a good decade for this wine to shed its tannins and come out of a dormant, closed period. It has finally emerged, and notes of iodine, seaweed, black currants, incense, and sweet cherries as well as hot rocks jump from the glass of this full-bodied, powerful wine.

It possesses considerable elegance and purity, along with loads of raspberries and incense, in a round, juicy, rich style that is just emerging from the closet.

The wine is still youthful and a pre-adolescent in terms of its ultimate evolution.

Approachable now, it will continue to evolve for another 15-20 years. Bravo!
(WA–Jun 2010)
