Domaine de la Solitude Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 750ml
This historic cuvee, produced since the 17th century, is a blend of our different terroirs ranging from Safres to Rounded Pebbles. The terroirs of Safres give it finesse and elegance, while the soil with Rounded Pebbles bring force and structure. It is a blend of major varietals: Grenache noir, Syrah, and Mourvedre, but also of all the 13 varietals authorised by the Chateauef-du-Pape AOC, in smaller proporations.
A bouquet nose of garrigue, flowers of cistus, blackcurrant buds. A mouth full of freshness and balance, with aromas of cocoa and Morello cherry, with a long and licorice finish.
In its youth, this vintage is perfect to pair with a shoulder of lamb 12 hour cooking in oven, roast pigeon with fungi porcini and from its fifth year, stew, Daube Provencal, all game and many cheeses.
