Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Not surprisingly, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (Domaine de Vieux Lazaret) possesses more power, concentration and substance. Dense black raspberry, garrigue, licorice and floral notes are found in this pure, impressively full-bodied 2010 along with lots of fat, glycerin, flesh and succulence. Enjoy this beauty over the next 10-15 years. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

When you hear the words “Hollywood and Vine," the famous intersection in Los Angeles might come to mind, but for us, the name represents the partnership between friends and a mutual love of wine.

When you hear the words “Hollywood and Vine," the famous intersection in Los Angeles might come to mind, but for us, the name represents the partnership between friends and a mutual love of wine. Actor turned director and screenwriter, Doug Barr, relocated to the Napa Valley from Hollywood, in the early 1990’s. Inspired to try his hand at the wine business, Doug called his longtime pal, Bruce Orosz, and together, they created Hollywood and Vine Cellars. Recruiting one of the most talented winemakers in the valley, Celia Welch, H & V released it’s first vintage in 1998 to glowing reviews. Read less

Ein ausgewogener, frischer, fruchtiger, mittelkräftiger Weisswein. Hellgelb mit leichten Grünreflexen. Etwas verhaltenes Bouquet mit gewisser Komplexität. Sehr ausgewogene Fruchtnoten: etwas Kernobst (Quitte), Steinobst (Aprikose, Pfirsich), Zitrusfrüchte und exotische Aromen (Mango). Dazu kommt leichte Mineralität. Im Gaumen trocken und ausgewogen. Die Struktur ist eher füllig und harmonisch. In der Rückaromatik wiederum schöne Mineralität und leichte Salzigkeit. Mittellanger Abgang.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is nearly the same in style as this cuvee tasted in the early to mid-1970s. The color is a dark ruby/purple and the bouquet is, typically, reserved and repressed. The wine possesses good fruit as well as medium body, but it is foursquare, straightforward and simple. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. A fresh take on Clos Du Val's world-class style, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winery's tradition of producing truly distinctive wines of balance and elegance while adding a hint of modernity. Its opulent, brooding purple hue is accentuated with aromas of ripe black and red fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The palate displays a seamless integration of rich flavors which include chocolate, toffee and ripe blackberry. The wine has a rich, full mouthfeel marked by focused, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish. Expect this Caberne...

The complexity and intensity of the aromas are evident from the moment the cork is popped. Aromas hinting of red fruit, raspberries and cherries, along with orange peel, and spicy oak notes add to the enjoyment. It has more than sufficient body and structure with added flavors of vanilla and chocolate. Lively, bright, and balanced flavors are evidenced on the palate, with a long satisfying finish. - Winery

Savory herbs, mint, cinnamon, cloves and plums are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon 2480. Energy and focus are the hallmarks of the 2010. Layers of fruit flow through to the layered, deeply expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. Good full ruby. Blueberry and blackberry aromas are lifted by spicecake and clove oil. Comes across as smoother than the 2009, but with a similarly aggressive quality to the briary blackberry and cassis flavors. The tough tannins come across as a bit dry. Plenty of stuffing here, but this powerful wine is going to require time in bottle to come into harmony. - Stephen Tanzer 89-91 Points
