This Côtes du Rhône is made from 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre that was brought up all in concrete tanks. It offers everything you could want from a Côtes du Rhône, with ample black raspberry, strawberry, garrigue and floral notes flowing to a medium-bodied, seamless, hard to resist style on the palate. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years
Located in the heart of the appellation, in the La Solitude lieu-dit, just on the western edge of the La Crau plateau, Domaine de la Solitude has been in the Lançon family for generations (the estate was created in the 17th century). Today, the winemaking reins are in the hands of the young, yet incredibly talented Florent Lançon, who has a green thumb when comes to growing just about anything (ask to see his greenhouse if you visit!).
