Not Vintage Specific

James Suckling 96
Very complex and composed. Bright aromas of wild, red-berries and herbs. Some blueberry pastry, too. Plush, ripe and concentrated palate with long, smooth, ripe and powerful tannins. Great depth and detail. Fresh, red-berry and plum flavors run riot on the finish. Drink or hold.
Jeb Dunnuck 92
Bottled in April (which is always earlier than the other two Châteauneuf-du-Papes from this estate), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Télégramme has real depth and richness as well as terrific notes of black raspberries, crushed rocks, salty, licorice, pepper, crushed flowers, and toasted spices. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, with plenty of tannins hiding under its fruit, it's an ideal wine for readers looking to see a hint of the style of this estate. It will keep for over a decade as well.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91
Boasting silky tannins, strawberry-raspberry fruit and delicate herbal shadings, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Telegramme isn't hugely rich or concentrated, but it is harmonious and graceful. Bottled in March 2018, it's immediately approachable yet capable of providing pleasure over the next 5-7 years.
