At the beginning of the 19th century, the Quiot Family bought a old Lazaret (a hospice run by religious Lazarists who play a very important role at the time of the plague of 1720, when a third of the villages population died) and built up a proper domaine by linking up parcels of land owned on the commune. The « Domaine du Vieux Lazaret », built up over three centuries, by marriage, purchase, distribution has this name since 1915.

With a traditional feel, this wonderfully complex, fleshy and slightly lactic southern Rhone blend offers a great deal of bang for your buck. A deal at less than twice the price of a standard format bottle. Generous and with traditional charm from the reliable and well-established Chateau Lazaret. A compelling, slightly lactic note offers a dimension of complexity. The palate is a little less full and fleshy, in an appealing way, than the norm but exhibits good complexity and balance. Barrique notes of lavender and licorice linger on the very long finish.
Rating 90 - Sara d'Amato, WineAlign (NOV/2015)
Deep ruby. Aromas of dark berries, cola and vanilla are lifted by a hint of peppery spices. Fleshy and open-knit, offering sweet blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of mocha. Fine-grained tannins make a late appearance, adding shape and grip to the juicy, persistent finish. Rating 90 - Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar (JAN/2013)
