Florent Lancon is the 8th generation of his family to make wine at Solitude. They are located in the best part of CDP, the La Crau peninsula. He is a descendant of the 12thcentury Barberini family of Rome, and has a Pope and two Cardinals on his family tree. They were also the first family to bottle and label a Chateauneuf du Pape in the 17thcentury.

This wine is a tribute to our ancestor Paul Martin, who was one of the first French Vignerons to sell his wine in bottles in the 18th century under the name “Vin de la Solitude”. We have reissued the four original labels of « Vin de la Solitude » for this wine. This wine is elaborated in the state of wine art in the 18th century. Our researches showed that the blends were very different, where Grenache grape variety did not use to dominate. The wines were made of a large number of co-fermented grape varieties. Macerations were longer than they are nowadays.

Tasting Notes:

  • Elegant and refined wine, tannic while remaining fresh.
  • Floral nose with small black fruits and spices.
  • A mouth with blackcurrant aromas, subtle tannins and a great length.
