(From 2009 Vintage) The outstanding Vieux Lazaret 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (nearly 30,000 cases produced) offers up lovely black cherry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with cedarwood, licorice and a whiff of Provencal herbs. This deep ruby/purple-tinged wine is a fresh, ripe, full-bodied, classic Chateauneuf du Pape made in a pure, zesty style.
(From 1999 Vintage) Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Châteauneuf-du-Pape red has a full deep color with the bouquet of spice and old leather, with flavor and balance of tannin, length and ripe fruit. It can be enjoyed over 8-12 years, and accompany all red meats, casseroles and cheeses.
