Domaine de la Solitude Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2017

The Domaine de la Solitude Blanc is a white wine largely inspired from the successful model developed over a long period at Domaine de Chevalier. Adopting a rigorous selection criteria only grapes of the very highest quality are used in the blend. The fruit is slowly pressed and the juice flows down by gravity into a buried vat. It is then decanted into one year old barrels where the phases of vinification all take place at once. The fermentation in casks and the regular stirring of the fine sediment lasts 9 to 10 months and then the bottling happens before the following summer. Fining of the wine is only made when necessary. This meticulous attention to detail give the wine its precise character, with its freshness and power, its extreme elegance, its beautiful lasting taste in the mouth and its capacity to age well. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc (60%) and Sémillon (40%), the Domaine de la Solitude Blanc offers explosive floral and fruity aromas of acacia, peach, citrus and exotic fruits. The palate is rich and fresh with a typical mineral accent and the finish is long and exquisite.

Vintage Availability

If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
