Domaine de la Solitude

A rarity in Chateauneuf du Pape, this large estate has one single holding of 38 hectares all situated in the lieu-dit called La Solitude, which is adjacent to the famed rocky plateau of La Crau (the earliest maturing and most precocious terroir of the appellation). Most estates’ parcels are spread throughout the appellation, so this is a rare occurrence indeed.

 

This is also one of the oldest estates in Chateauneuf du Pape, tracing its history back to the 13th century. Domaine de la Solitude has been run by the Lancon family for many decades. They were one of the first estates to estate-bottle.

 

The Domaine makes four red Chateauneuf-du-Pape cuvees: Tradition, Cuvee Barberini, Cuvee Cornelia Constanzia and Cuvee Reserve Secrete. Over the last 5 or 6 years, they have shown great amelioration thanks to the efforts of Jean and Michel Lancon.
