The origin of the name Vieux Lazaret dates back to the 18th century when there existed in the center of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape a hospice, known as a lazaret. This offered comfort and shelter for the poor and the infirm, provided by the Lazarists, who were a silent order of monks founded in 1625 by St Vincent de Paul to look after the sick and the needy in the French countryside. They took the name Lazarists from the Priory of St Lazare in Paris, where the original order had been formed in 1632.

The Lazarists in Châteauneuf-du-Pape played a major role in helping the locals during the terrible epidemic of the plague, which killed a third of the population in 1720. During the 19th century, the Quiot family purchased property and buildings in the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and created the center of winemaking for Vignobles Famille Quiot. With this historical association going back over several centuries, the Quiot family decided in 1915 to give the name of Domaine du Vieux Lazaret to their principal Domaine producing Châteauneuf-du-Pape.  Serve with red meats, dishes cooked in tomato and onion sauces, roasted vegetables, charcuterie and cheeses.

This has a nice mix of loganberry, damson plum and black cherry compote notes that work well against a backdrop of garrigue, sanguine and mineral details. The fruit holds sway through the finish, with the secondary notes adding contrast. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 16,666 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

A blend of 67% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 6% other authorized varieties, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape offers tight, restrained aromas of red berries and cherries, plus hints of leather, earth and dried spices. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate yet rather ungenerous, marked by tart acids on the lean finish. It may drink well for a decade or more, but I suspect it will always be on the austere side.
