Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2017 $56.00
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.
