Domaine de la Solitude has been producing a tiny quantity of “Rosé wine” for around 15 years. Pale in colour, intense and fruity aromas. This wine is fresh, dynamic and thirst-quenching. A real delicacy.

Domaine de la Solitude

Domaine de la Solitude dates back to the 1820s when the estate was known as The Hermitage - which was a monastic order, the sisterhood continue to live there to this day. In 1993, the sisters decided to entrust the operation of the vineyard for 40 years to the Famille Bernard, owner of the Domaine de Chevalier. With the aim to produce classical wine that expresses the elements of the terroir and compares to the very best Grand Crus of the Pessac Léognan appellation. After the 40 year lease was up another , updated, long-term leasing arrangement in 2009. Following the example of Chevalier, Domaine de la Solitude produces Pessac-Léognan grapes rich in colours and flavours vintage after vintage and as M Bernard says, "A great wine is always born of a great grape."
Domaine de la Solitude Rosé is a beautiful pale pink colour with glistening reflections. Intense red berry bouquet coupled with mineral notes from the gravelly soil. On the palate, red fruit is dominant but with a lovely warm spice too. Round, supple with good acidity adding a fresh notes to balance the fruit. Its precision and sharpness accompany a long finish, complex and tart.
Drink with tapas or gilled vegetables. This rosé could also be enjoyed with fresh fruit or a fruity tart.
The terroir has similarities to Chevalier, but the vines are planted over 40 hectares with an average age 25 years old. There is great diversity of terrain in both areas, although the structure of the grounds is significantly different.  Harvesting is done by hand and vinification takes place in vats, with endogenous (wild) yeasts, using moderate temperatures followed by Malolactic fermentation in barrels.
