A great wine to put in the cellar, from an absolutely outstanding vintage! Spicy, rich, and detailed, Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Cuvee Exceptionelle has deep ruby purple color. Jammy red cherry, black raspberry nose. Lush velvety texture. Laced with spice and Herbs de Provence.
"Enjoyable is the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a spectacular nose of blackberry liqueur, cassis, and kirsch. Full-bodied and fruit-driven, it possesses loads of glycerin, a layered texture, exceptional purity, and a long finish."
