Domaine du Vieux Lazaret 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape, Rhone Valley, France
International Wine Cellar rating: 90..."Deep, vivid ruby. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of cherry, black raspberry, lavender and white pepper, with a bright mineral topnote. Spicy and incisive, with juicy red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors that show an open-knit character. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, spice- and floral-accented finish. Unlike most 2010 Chateauneufs this fruit-driven wine is surprisingly accessible."
