Description

Vin de la Solitude Rouge
 A.O.C. Châteauneuf du Pape

This wine is a tribute to our ancestor Paul Martin, who was one of the first French Vignerons to sell his wine in bottles in the 18th century under the name “Vin de la Solitude”. We have reissued the four original labels of « Vin de la Solitude » for this wine. This wine is elaborated in the state of wine art in the 18th century. Our researches showed that the blends were very different, where Grenache grape variety did not use to dominate. The wines were made of a large number of co-fermented grape varieties. Macerations were longer than they are nowadays.

    • Grenache noir 25%

    • Serine 22% (ancêtre de la Syrah)
