VINTAGE 2015

Vintage 2015

Vintage 2013: Deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of fresh cherry, boysenberry, licorice and fresh flowers carry a peppery nuance. Juicy, sweet and pliant, offering very good clarity and aromatic lift to the flavors of dark fruit liqueur, lavender and spicecake. In a lush, ample style but showing very good energy, with solid closing thrust and smooth tannins adding shape.

Vintage 2013: Possessing obvious oak in its black raspberry, vanilla and cassis-slanted bouquet, the 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Cuvee exceptionnelle medium-bodied, forward and open knit. It’s slightly straightforward, but I do like it’s purity of fruit. Drink it on release and over the following 5-7 years.

Vintage 2009 - USA Saturated ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas and flavors of black and blue fruits, with a floral quality gaining strength with aeration. Supple and sweet, with plenty of vanillin oak character but noteworthy fruit as well. The floral note repeats on the long finish, which features a juicy blueberry quality

Vintage 2010 - COMPETITION Cette Cuvée Exceptionnelle d'un rouge grenat profond nous submerge de ses arômes de baies cuites, framboise et myrtille, d'une belle maturité où intensité et complexité sont au rendez vous. Harmonieuse, la bouche de fruits frais compotés et à la belle trame tannique laisse entrevoir encore quelques belles années

Vintage 2009 - ASIA BRONZE MEDAL

Vintage 2010 - USA Deep ruby. Exotic aromas of black raspberry and cherry-cola, with notes of incense and smoky minerals. Broad, fleshy and concentrated, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors, supple texture and energizing spiciness. Unfolds with air, picking up dusty tannins and trailing notes of sweet cola and smoke.

vintage 2010 - USA Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of black raspberry jam, kirsch, lavender, spice box, pepper and spring flowers. Rich and full-bodied with no hard edges, this opulent, voluptuously textured, dense, stunningly rich 2010 is capable of drinking well for 15-20 years.

Vintage 2009 - Millésime 2009 SILVER MEDAL - Médaille d'Argent

vintage 2009

Vintage 2009 The deep purple-hued, savory Vieux Lazaret 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle (a blend of concrete-aged Grenache and small barrel-aged Syrah from 40- to 85-year-old vines) is a richer, fuller, more intense and compelling example of the traditional cuvee. Given the voluptuous nature and opulence of the 2009 vintage, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years. It is expansive and full-bodied with copious black cherry and black raspberry fruit notes intertwined with hints of licorice and incense. This seductive effort is irresistible

vintage 2009: The limited production of the 2009 is stunning. Beautiful floral notes intermixed with licorice, incense, black raspeberry, black cherry liqueur and a hint of camphor are followed by a dense, full bodied, opaque ruby/purple colored wine with layer upon layer of fruit and texture. This wine is very 2007-ish in style and personality and should drink well for 15+ years.
