Domaine du Vieux Lazaret 2016 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The nose is elegant, fine, racy and offers a very fine power. It reveals notes of quince, small yellow fruits / yellow plum associated with touches of brugnon, apple, quenette as well as very discreet hints of zest and flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, very discreetly “perlante” (discreetly sparkling) and offers a good definition, a small tension, power, a slight richness, a beautiful crystalline minerality, a good structure as well as a beautifully fine and very slightly tight grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of Williams pear, ripe brugnon and small notes of quince, crunchy physalis, yellow plum as well as a very discreet hint of beeswax and a toasted / nutmeg. Good length.
