**** Very good 
The third in line - my vertical of VT CDP
Interestingly this is the one that gets the best scores in the mags, but I think I prefer the 2004. That said, this is dense and chewy but with some bright notes that I identified as raspberry. The bright is cut with the dark taste of blackberry and spice. Admirably long finish has that briars and brush thing going on.

Decanter Magazine Decanter Magazine
« Black jam, baked stones in a full, broad bouquet. Savoury attack, with a sweet thread all through. Clear, warm texture, wtih herbal traces. Balance good, with a fresh finish. High potential. Drink 2009-31. »
Robert Parker Robert Parker
« The 2005 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape, this estate’s strongest vintage since 1998, has put on serious weight since last year. Dense ruby/purple-colored with an exquisite perfume of black raspberries, kirsch, ground pepper, and incense, this full-bodied, powerful, concentrated wine reveals fabulous purity as well as a finish that lasts over 45 seconds. Purchasers of this beauty will need patience. Anticipated maturity : 2012-2025.»
TheWineDoctor : « A cherry pink-red hue in the glass. Often when tasted at this stage in its evolution I have found Vieux Télégraphe to be rather simple in its aromatics, but this wows me with wild notes of garrigue and aromatic herbs on top of the usual sweet fruit. It has a very soft entry onto the palate despite this, but then reveals a well composed supple melding of ripe tannins, well covered by fruit, with a good acid backbone as well. There is true character here too. Great potential, a fine vintage for the Bruniers I think. »

Stephen Tanzer Stephen Tanzer
« Deep, bright red. Explosively perfumed nose offers seductive raspberry, kirsch and floral scents, with a suave mineral underpinning. Extremely fresh, with precise red fruit and floral pastille flavors strongly reminiscent of a broad-shouldered pinot noir. Finishes with outstanding clarity, sweetness and persistence. »
