Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2020 Magnum
Domaine du Vieux Lazaret is one of the main estates of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and one of the oldest, dating from 1748. The domaine covers around 100 ha, where all 13 permissible grape varieties are grown.
There are three main soil types within the domain - soils with rolled pebbles, stony terraces with sand and gravel sub-soils and clay soils formed from the limestone mother rock.
The wine is made with traditional techniques; total de-stemming, pumping over twice a day and with 2 to 3 weeks in concrete vats followed by 18 months in vats and barrels (15%).
In youth the wine is a deep crimson with ripe dark fruit and spices which develop into prune, liquorice and black pepper notes with time.
