    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet color. Notes of red cherries, plums and bilberries with a hint of violets and dried roses. Long, soft, well-rounded finish.

    Food matching: Dishes containing truffles, wild mushrooms and game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Perhaps the finest wine I have ever tasted from Jerome Quiot is Vieux Lazaret's 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle. This fabulous wine boasts an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of cassis, black raspberry liqueur, spring flowers, and hints of graphite and truffles. It is deep, ripe, full-bodied, rich, and multidimensional with a stunningly long, 45+ second finish. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age, and consume it over the following two decades.
    Range: 92-94

    A single vat's worth of wine culled from teh cellar's best lots, this is silky and sophisticated. There's a wild meatiness to the black raspberry and cherry flavors that contrasts its vanilla gloss, and an herbal acidity that keeps it shapely and firm. Just beginning to reveal itself: Give it ten to 15 years in the cellar to see what it becomes.

    Highly toasty and oaky, and yet the wine never seems too extreme given the intensity of the cherry fruit. It's full bodied, lush and supple, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now - 2019.
