Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2019
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine du Vieux Lazaret|
Light yellow gold. 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. At first open, the wine falls off slightly, then continues to reveal a persistent aromatic conclusion. Well-integrated acidity surfaces at the end together with a mouth-coating texture. Easily the best wine for pairing with Lobster but also delicious with other seafood, puff-pastries, white meats or goat cheeses.
A bright, fresh style, with verbena, white peach, lime pith and honeysuckle notes all racing along in unison. Good brisk feel without sacrificing generosity. Drink now through 2024. 4,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
