Domaine de la Solitude in Wine Spectator's Insider

Domaine de la Solitude has had great success in the 2015 vintage, according to Wine Spectator critic James Molesworth. The "Cuvée Barberini," "Secrète Réserve," and "Cornelia Costanza" Châteauneuf-du-Papes are all featured in the August 9, 2017 of Insider.


Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cornelia Constanza 2015
This has great energy from the start, with notes of bay leaf, warm brick and juniper leading the way, backed by a solid core of red currant, raspberry and plum coulis flavors. The long finish lets sanguine and iron accents flow through while still leaving plenty of room for the fruit. (96 points)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Secrète Réserve 2015
This is packed with dark plum, blackberry and boysenberry preserve flavors at the core, enlivened with juniper, tobacco and licorice snap notes. Lovely roasted apple wood accents score the finish, with the fruit taking a long encore. (96 points)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Barberini 2015
This drips with raspberry, cassis and plum fruit flavors, with a remarkably silky feel throughout. Alluring black tea and incense notes hang in the background, and there’s an element of roasted apple wood as well. The fruit blazes through the finish. (95 points)
