No, it's not the world leaders for the G20 Summit. It is Domaine de la Solitude's Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve Secrete.
Domaine de la Solitude's top wine is called Reserve Secrete. It is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre from very old vines, cropped at extremely low levels.
It is a special wine only made in vintages where the quality is extremely high.
The domaine has clearly got this right as I doubt you could find a more consistently highly rated wines as this. It is always at the top of the Chateauneuf ratings year-in, year-out.
We are pleased to offer a range of vintages of this tremendous wine direct from the domaine.
We have 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2010 available. Check out the scores and reviews for the range - they will impress!
This is the 2010 but make sure you check out all the vintages. Stocks of most are very low so don't delay.

The Rhone Report: My favorite vintage of this cuvee to date and a knockout wine that is up there with the best of the vintage, the 2010 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Secrète is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that has all of the Syrah and a small portion of the Grenache aged in new French oak. Rich, deep, and powerful, with a saturated, inky color, this delivers a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors, with notions of blackberry, chocolate, smoke, pepper, graphite, and pot roast-like nuances all soaring from the glass. Where the Cuvée Cornelia Constanza is all Grenache, all the time, this has a (slightly) more restrained profile, while still playing in that full-bodied, decadent end of the spectrum. Very concentrated, structured, and beautifully balanced, this blockbuster needs 4-5 years of bottle age, and will shine for two decades or more.
