Expert Reviews

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, (15/APR/2015)

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, WNEALIGN (NOV/2015)

Still very youthful and closed (tasted from magnum), I like the succulence and juiciness, the roasted dark fruit character and the spice here in Vieux Lazaret's 2012 Châteauneuf. Ultimately, the density and concentration are merely good, not exceptional, but this remains balanced and highly drinkable. I'd say another 2-3 years should see this fully resolve.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Over the course of the centuries and throughout their family history the Quiot family, winemakers since 1748, have established wonderful properties which are constantly being enlarged.

The story begins in the Vaucluse, at Chateauneuf-du-Pape where Antoine Quiot acquired a few hectares of vines in 1748. Today, the Domaine du Vieux Lazaret comprises more than 100 hectares with some of the land located in the Côtes du Ventoux region. The 13th generation of the family currently work the estate.

Next, close to Aix en Provence at the foot of Mont Sainte Victoire, the Domaine Houchart came into the family in 1890. It was added to with the Domaine de Verlaque in 2002. Today, Florence and Jean-Baptiste are the fifth generation to work the estate.

Back to Chateauneuf-du-Pape where the Domaine Duclaux was established in the 1750s and has been worked by the Quiot family since 1987. The Duclaux family’s final descendant, Emmeline, passed away in 2001 and left the estate to Florence and Jean-Baptiste.

In 2000, the Quiot family diversified into wine selection, complimenting the range of wines from their own estates.

Finally, after looking to expand into the Rhône area for a long time, the Quiot family bought the Château du Trignon in 2006 and in 2008 enlarged it with 10 hectares of Vacqueyras grapes and 2 hectares of Beaumes de Venise grapes.
