The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is a sexy, delicious concoction of roasted herbs, ground pepper, sweet kirsch, and blacker fruits presented in a lush, accessible, seductive style.
(From 1997 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.
