  • A well-textured, ripe, and full-bodied wine delivering rich black fruits, mocha expresso, and a subtle hint of smoke. Smooth on the palate with integrated tannins and a lingering finish, this is a traditional and elegant Chateauneuf.

The Grenache comes from the best parcels of old vines. This Domaine has one of the best terroirs in Chateauneuf-du-Pape with its abundance of rounded quartzite stones, known as "Galet Roul terroir, which comes from the Villafranchian period. These stones absorb heat during the day and then radiate it at night, promoting full grape maturity. The grapes are manually harvested, once each variety has reached phenological ripeness, based on grape tastings by an expert panel. The grape bunches are then meticulously sorted to remove any unwanted fruit.

Wines have been made on this estate for several hundred years, dating back to 1264 when the family arrived from Italy to serve the pope in Avignon. The three hats depicted on the label, signify two bishops and a pope, who were among the forefathers of the Lançon family. The 38-hectare domain in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation is now run by Florent Lançon, who cultivates the estate sustainably, as certified by Terra Vitis. Florent, who is passionate about innovative winemaking, while honoring traditional values, has recently started working with new tulip-shaped concrete vats which were initially designed for Cheval Blanc and are at the cutting edge of winemaking technology. Domaine de la Solitude’s wines are renowned for their characteristic elegance whilst expressing the true origins of their terroir.
