Producer Note
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, signifies two bishops and a pope, who were among the fore
fathers of the Lançon family. Today, the domain with its 38 hectares in the
Châteauneuf du Pape appellation, is passing to the next generation as brothers
Jean and Michel Lançon are handing over the reins to Florent, Michel's son. Florent,
who is passionate about innovative winemaking, while honouring 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 Solitutude’s wines are renowned for their characteristic elegance
whilst expressing the true origins of their terroir.


Vintage
A wet winter was followed by a mild spring, which maintained the soil’s water
reserves and nourished the vines later in the year during the warm growing period.
The 2018 summer was very hot and dry which allowed the grapes to reach excellent
maturity, resulting in expressive wines with wonderful fruit concentration.


Vineyard
The Côtes du Rhône vineyards are situated mainly in Gard, with over 50% of the
grapes coming from Côtes du Rhône Villages vineyards; the remainder coming from
the named parcels of Plan de Dieu and Rasteau. The vineyards all have a stony,
granitic soil structure.


Winemaking
The grapes were fully destemmed. Fermentation took place in temperature
controlled concrete tanks, with 25 days of maceration. Gentle extraction techniques
such as pumping over or ‘remontage’, were used to retain the purity of fruit and
obtain the velvety tannins which are characteristic of Domaine de la Solitude. The
wine was matured in 100% in concrete tank, as per the traditional vinification of the
Southern Rhône Valley.


Tasting Note

black pepper and spice. Supple and rounded on the palate, supported by a
