Value seekers need to latch on to a few bottles of the 2016 Côtes du Rhône from Domaine de la Solitude. This Provençal beauty boasts notes of peppery herbs, dark fruits, and incense, is medium to full-bodied, has tons of fruit, and a great finish. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years.

COMMENTARY: This wine is so good that it is almost boring. The 2016 Domaine de la Solitude Côtes du Rhône Rouge is dictionary-perfect. TASTING NOTES: This wine is ripe, firm, and persistent. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruits accented with savory spices should pair it well with braised meat dishes. (Tasted: October 1, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

In the 1980s, brothers Michel and Jean Lançon took the future of Domaine de la Solitude in their hands, focusing attention on the vineyards. Fertilizers have not been used at Solitude for the past ten years. Over the past several years, Michel’s son Florent Lançon has been taking over the day-to-day operations of Domaine de la Solitude, continuing to make improvements while preserving the traditions of his father and uncle. The Estate is a contiguous 100 acres, planted to 86 acres of red grapes and 14.8 acres of white grapes, with vines averaging 50 years of age.

Driven by the desire to produce the best possible wines while still respecting the traditions of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and their lineage, in 1999, Michel and Jean decided to introduce four prestige cuvées and added Cuvée Barberini Rouge, Cuvée Barberini Blanc, Réserve Secrète, and Cornelia Constanza to the winery’s production.

Typically thought of as a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhone actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red varieties include most of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.
