Description

The balance and aromatic intensity of a Pessac-Léognan red wine

The estate

The origin of the name Domaine de La Solitude can be traced back to the rule of the Holy Family community: pray in the silence of solitude. The community moved to the estate in the 19th century. The sisters decided to entrust the winegrowing management of this Pessac-Léognan to outside parties. Olivier Bernard has been managing the estate since 1993. A very old estate in Martillac, Domaine de la Solitude stands out for the quality of its wines, which offer excellent value for money, are accessible in their youth and promise to develop well.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Pessac-Léognan wines, Domaine de la Solitude looks after a 30-hectare red vineyard planted on gravelly soil on a clay-gravel subsoil. This cuvée is made from vines that are an average of 35 years old.

The vintage

The low-rainfall winter preceded early flowering between 15 and 20 May. Episodes of rain and thunderstorms occurred in June. The water reserves accumulated in the subsoil and the hard work of the winegrowers helped the vines to adapt to a summer marked by several heat waves. Harvesting of the white varieties took place between 22 August and 2 September. The red grape varieties were harvested between 6 and 27 September.

Winemaking and ageing

Table sorting before and after destemming. Gravity vatting. Temperature regulated at 30°C at the end of fermentation. Aged in barrels for one year, including the first few months on the lees.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)
Merlot (40%)
