Domaine Du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2020 (France: Rhone, Southern) (ID# 3867)

Name Domaine Du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2020 (ID# 3867)
Varietal Blend
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "A penetrating strike of honey lends richness to zingy notes of tart nectarine and apricot in this bright-fruited wine. A blend of 45% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette, 20% Bourboulenc and just 5% barrel-fermented Roussanne, its fruit profile is scintillating and pure, accented by a hint of smoky, toasty perfume." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"The nose of beeswax, lime zest and jasmine pulls you into this powerful, creamy but very clean and precise white Chateauneuf. Impressively long and finely nuanced finish." (James Suckling) "Attractive, multifaceted aroma, youthful and moderately full, showing a mélange of quince and fennel complemented by a toasted note. The palate reveals more, notably ripe yellow fruits, spice and herbal highlights. Well-integrated acidity surfaces at the end together with a mouth-coating texture." (Winemaker's Notes)
