Rose de La Solitude 2017
- Rose Wine
Light red color. Fruity on the nose, nice aromas of red berries (strawberry) and herbs. A clean rich taste of fresh red fruits especially strawberry and raspberry. A fresh long finish with much citrus. An elegant but simple wine.
The Lancon family, owners of Domaine de la Solitude, descend directly from the 12th Century Barberini family of Rome. The best known of the family, Maffeo Barberini, was a papal nuncio, or diplomatic representative, in Paris from 1604 to 1606, and was made Pope in Rome under the name Pope Urban VIII. Two of his nephews became cardinals and a part of the family then settled down in Avignon. In the 1980s, brothers Michel and Jean Lancon took the future of Domaine de la Solitude in their hands, focusing attention on the vineyards. Over the past several years, Michel's son Florent Lancon has taken over the day-to-day operations of Domaine de la Solitude, continuing to make improvements while preserving the traditions of his father and uncle.
