Tradition Reimagined: The 2019 Famille Lançon 'La Solitude' Côtes du Rhône Rouge

Rooted in Heritage, Thriving in Biodynamics: The storied Domaine de la Solitude, a beacon of tradition in the Rhône Valley, brings to the fore a biodynamic marvel with its 'La Solitude' Côtes du Rhône Rouge. This wine is a testament to an enduring legacy that dates back to the 15th century, intertwined with the pioneering spirit of biodynamic viticulture. The estate's philosophy, marrying respect for tradition with innovative agricultural practices, showcases a commitment to enhancing the symbiotic relationship between the earth and the vine. This commitment ensures that each bottle of 'La Solitude' not only tells the story of its terroir but does so in a way that is sustainable and harmonious with nature.

A Symphony of Soil and Vine: Crafted from a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, this wine is a vibrant testament to the estate's biodynamic vineyards. The grapes, flourishing in the warm Mediterranean climate of the Côtes du Rhône and rooted in the region's characteristic clay and limestone gravel soil, undergo a meticulous process of sorting and destemming before being vinified in concrete vats. This method honors the purity and intrinsic qualities of the fruit.
