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 Solitude’s wines are
renowned for their characteristic elegance whilst expressing the true origins of their
terroir.
Vineyard
This domain has one of the best terroirs in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with its abundance of
rounded quartzite stones from the Villafranchian period. These stones absorb heat
during the day 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.
Winemaking
The grapes were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. The juice was cold
settled and then fermented in temperature controlled tanks. The wine was racked and
then aged on its fine lees in small tanks with regular stirrings. A proportion of the
Roussanne was matured in new oak for a short period, adding subtle complexity to the
resulting wine. The wine was then bottled during the spring following the harvest.
Tasting Note

minerality and herbal nuances. On the palate, this wine is full-flavoured with a creamy
