The domaine du Vieux Lazaret is located at the foothill of Mont-Ventoux. This terroir has 14ha and is a real patchwork of sand, clay and gravel.
Vinification and maturation
Maceration lasts 21 days during which the pumping-over of the must is done twice a day. Then the ageing process continues for 20 months in concrete vats. 45% of the blend will age in Bourguignon barrels for 14 months after which the wine is bottled at the domain.
Deep intense ruby color robe. The nose is expressive with red berries (Morello cherry and raspberry), toasted wood, caramel and a hint of spices and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied with a fine long finish. The tannins are present, high but well blended.
This wine is perfect with truffle dishes, wild mushrooms or wild game.
The Exceptional Vintage is the result of a careful selection performed by Jérôme Quiot, from twenty barrels of the Domaine, set aside to mature and bottle in a special way. According to the vintage, this could be a blend of various selected barrels.
