Domaine Du Vieux Lazaret

Le Vieux Donjon

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Medium ruby with pronouned aromas of violets, fresh, slightly cooked strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, red plum, cedar wood, christmas cake, and earth. On the palate, medium but oh so ripe, deliciously smooth tannins and high fruit concentration paint a full bodied wine with a long, lingering finish. I can easily imagine my score increasing as it matures, gaining even more finesse and complexity. The 2016 Vieux Donjon is a head turner. Drink from 2026 to 2041 — 8 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Lazaret

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2019

A bit light in color and body. Thirteen of the permitted grapes are included in this CDP. Bright red fruit dominates both the nose and the pallet. Hints of red licorice, spices, leather and a touch of oak. Slightly Smokey finish. Somewhat rustic. Different. — 2 months ago

Vieux Château Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Aromatically lifted, elegant tannins, moderately framed with life and detail remaining. Not a vintage where the typical VCC richness shows, but the tannin profile is true to domaine. Spicebox, leather, tobacco, plumcake, earth and cigar smoke. — 2 months ago

Montagne-St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

9.3

I love this wine. One of the first smaller Bordeaux I ever had. Nose is cocoa, plum, smoke and some faint cassis. Such a nice dusty earthiness. Really juicy, pure and engaging. Lovely complexity, freshness and a big structure. Bittersweet cocoa on the finish. Needs time and tannins a little drying. I’ll be back. Terrific length here. 9.2 to 9.3. The tannins are slowly now moving into fruit and the process is happening. This is a fantastic wine. — 17 days ago
