Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a deep crimson
color with a bouquet of dipe dark berries, turning to spices. It is smooth and persistent with aromatic fullness.
"Lush and gorgeously ripe, with a beam of linzer torte and cassis coursing along, lined with blood orange, singed apple wood and bergamot notes. Best from 2014 through 2024."
"Not surprisingly, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (Domaine de Vieux Lazaret) possesses more power, concentration and substance. Dense black raspberry, garrigue, licorice and floral notes are found in this pure, impressively full-bodied 2010 along with lots of fat, glycerin, flesh and succulence."
The Wine Advocate
Nice Chateauneuf for the price.
Smooth & Supple
Very nice du Pape, and priced fairly. About 1/2 the price of Telegraphe, and better than 1/2 as good. Fruit forward, good finish, but flavors a bit thin compared to some others in this range. Overall, would try other du Pape's in this price range before buying this again. Good, but not great.
