Domaine de la Solitude Graves Blancs Pessac-Léognan Un Carton de Bouteilles 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Robert Parker: The sexiest wine of this quartet is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape, which comes from 30-50 year old vines and is aged primarily in tank with a tiny amount of the Syrah component kept in small barrels. The general blend is 55% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and Mourvedre. Its dark ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by big, sweet, juicy blueberry, blackberry, kirsch, licorice and smoked Provencal herb scents. Sumptuous, round, generous and already delicious, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-12 years. (Oct 2011)

Domaine de la Solitude:
The vinyard was first cultivated by the Barbarini family in the 14th century. The Barbarini's by then were wine makers of the pope that had moved to Avignon. The current owners mother is the last Barbarini alive. Expect a warm welcome in the simple tasting room. The Lancon brothers and their winemaker are very knowledgeable and speak English.
