The Wicklow Wine Company

Domaine de la Solitude, Cuvee Barberini, Blanc

69.95

The property has a glorious past. Wines have been made at this place for several hundred years. Often the owners have had connection to the church. The three hats on the label refer to two bishops and a pope among the forefathers of the Lancon familiy. The first member of the family in France came from Italy in 1264 to serve the pope in Avignon. His name was Barberini – the name today of the special cuvees from the domain. Today the sons of Pierre Lancon, Jean and Michel Lancon, are in charge at the domain and Florent, Michel’s son is responsible for the winemaking. The domain owns 38 ha. AOC Chateauneuf du Pape.

Tasting Notes
The nose is elegant and complex showing delicate aromas of peach flowers combined with hints of brioche. The elegant palate is rich and harmoniously balanced, with notes of citrus marmalade, peach and a very long, creamy, persistent finish beautifully balanced by mineral notes.
