2018 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Cuvée Cornelia Constanza  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

Floral, fresh and pure, the wine pops the moment it hits your glass. The complex nose, with its slight hint of espresso and smoke moves quickly to its floral side before hitting on its sweet red fruits. Round, juicy, spicy and fat, with a richness to all the peppery kirsch, give it a few years to fully integrate the wood and it will be an even better wine. The wine made from 100% old vine Grenache, and when I say old, all the vines are more than 100 years of age. This is one of the stars of the vintage. 95 Points

2018 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Vin de la Solitude  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

From an interesting blend that includes a large percentage of white wine grape varietals, the wine is surprisingly deeply colored. On the nose you find flowers, spice box and peppery black raspberries. Fresh, bright and juicy with loads of sweet kirsch and herbs on the rounded, fleshy palate seals the deal. 93 Points

2017 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Cuvée Cornelia Constanza  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 94

Made from 100% old vine Grenache, and when I say old, all the vines are more than 100 years of age. The wine pops with spring flowers, kirsch, raspberries, red plums and a hint of smoke and espresso bean. Elegant, round and earthy, there is a nice peppery pop to the sweet red fruits in the finish. It will take a few years for the oak to fully integrate into the wine. 94 Points

2017 Domaine de la Solitude (Lançon Père et Fils) Vin de la Solitude  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

Dark in color, the wine is floral, herbal, spicy, full, rich and deep. The wine is fruity, fresh and expresses itself on the nose and in the mouth, with a lush palate feel. This is only the second time this wine has been produced. It's not going to be easy to find as the production is limited to less than 1,000 bottles and 100 magnums. The wine is made from a blend used at the estate in the 18th century, 30% Counoise, 25% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 5% Clairette, 5% Bourboulenc, 5% Roussanne and the remainder coming from Clairette Rose and Grenache Blanc and is only available in an antique shaped bottle. 95 Points
