CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

This historic cuvée, produced since the 17th century, is a blend of our different terroirs ranging from Safres to Rounded Pebbles. The terroirs of Safres give it finesse and elegance, while the soil with Rounded Pebbles bring force and structure. It is a blend of 3 major varietals: Grenache noir, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, but also of all the 13 varietals authorised by the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC, in smaller proportions. 

La Solitude comprises 37 hectares in A.O.C Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The vineyard is tended according to organic farming principles. The grape types reflect the history of Châteauneuf-du-Pape since the thirteen traditional varietals are grown in the vineyard.
