Domaine de la Solitude Pessac-Léognan Rouge 2014
Domaine de la Solitude Pessac-Léognan Rouge is made to the same high standards and adopts the same winemaking principles as those Olivier Bernard adopts at Domaine de Chevalier. The aim is to produce a classical wine that expresses the elements of the terroir and compares to the very best Grand Crus of the Pessac Léognan appellation. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) all grapes are carefully selected and hand harvested, before further rigorous selection at the winery sorting table. The grapes are de-stemmed and transferred to tank via gravity in order to protect the integrity of the skin of the fruit, so important for the wines tannins. Intense red in colour the Domaine de la Solitude Rouge is a beautifully balanced wine, full, fresh and fruity with a long structured and velvety palate.
