Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Châteauneuf-du-Pape

LCBO#: 957266
Price: $67.75
Made in: Rhône, France
By: Vignobles Jerome Quiot
Year: 2007

This French wine came in a nice wooden box with some safety packaging hay inside. Pours a purple red colour and the aromas are a beautiful bouquet of fruits (plums, cherries, and other berries). Also notes of leather, caramel and tobacco. The taste has some nice sharp bite of bitterness with all of the fruits and the smokey leaf. Decent tannins and dryness in the finish. Some yeasty tart lingers leaving a mild nutty flavour. Quite a nice red wine that has loads of fruity notes and tobacco.

Rating: 4.3/5
