Winemaker's Notes:

The white is a blend of 45% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette, 20% Bourboulenc and 5% of barrel fermented Roussanne A delicious, dry white, it has a fresh acidity, married to a round, long flavor with aromas of honey and almonds. As the wine ages, it becomes riper with flavors of fruit confits and minerals.

About Domaine du Vieux Lazaret:

The vineyards of Domaine du Vieux Lazaret are spread over 90 hectares, split into 35 different parcels of vines throughout Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape. It is today amongst the largest domains in Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape, with 80 hectares planted in red grape varieties and 10 planted with white grapes. The number of parcels enables the Domaine du Vieux Lazaret to give greater complexity to its wines due to the diversity of soils, grape types and differing ages of vines.

Harvesting of the grapes is done entirely by hand, with very strict selection of the best grapes to enhance the quality of the Domaine du Vieux Lazaret wine. This limits the maximum production, under the A.O.C laws, to 35 hectoliters per hectare.
