Domaine de la Solitude has to be one of the most consistent producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Their wines always receive excellent reviews, year-in, year-out.
We are delighted to offer a selection of back vintage MAGNUMS direct from the domaine. The selection includes all 3 of their Prestige bottlings: Cuvee Barberini, Cuvee Cornelia Constanza and Cuvee Reserve Secrete. These MAGNUMS are handsomely presented in individual wooden boxes.
Of particular note is the 2005 Cuvee Cornelia Constanza. This is the first vintage of this magnificent 100% Grenache wine and is quite a rarity in MAGNUM.
All of these Magnums are offered at Pre Arrival Prices which will save you 15% on the landed cost. Get in quick - stocks of these MAGNUMS are very limited.
Cuvee Barberini is named after the forefather Francois Barberini, the first in the line, and Maffeo Barberini who became Pope Urbain VIII. It is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre from the oldest vines and is only produced in top vintages. First vintage was 1999.
Cuvee Cornelia Constanza is named after another ancestor. It is 100% Grenache from 100+ year old vines. Only around 3,000 bottles are produced and only in top years. First produced in 2005.
Cuvee Reserve Secrete. A powerful, sumptuous wine made from around half Syrah and Grenache with a little Mourvedre. Around two thirds of the wine is aged in new barriques for 16 months. First vintage was 2000.
