Domaine de la Solitude - Full Estate Review by Wine Advocate's Jeb Dunnuck

Domaine de la Solitude has its fair share of outstanding reviews, but rarely does it receive one as comprehensive and extensive as Wine Advocate's October write-up. Jeb Dunnuck provides an in depth look into the terroir, wine making practices, and past vintages of this domaine; even highlighting the 1967 Châteauneuf-du-Pape.   

Driven by the desire to produce the best possible wines while still respecting the traditions of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and their lineage, current vignerons Michel and Jean Lançon, along with Michel's son Florent are taking seriously the future of Domaine de la Solitude. The Estate is a contiguous 100 acres, planted to 86 acres of red grapes and 14.8 acres of white grapes, with vines averaging 50 years of age. Michel and Jean decided to introduce four prestige cuvées and added Cuvée Barberini Rouge,  Cuvée Barberini Blanc,  Réserve Secrète, and Cornelia Constanza to the winery’s production.
