2019 Domaine le Sollier
|Grapes||Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah|
50% Syrah 30% Grenache & 20% Cinsault. The temptation to overwork wine must be immense, so hats off to the team at Sollier, this is about as easy going and inviting as red wine can be. A brightness and purity of fruit on the nose, blackcurrant, red cherry and violets, the freshness is still abundant on the palate, backed up by aromatic spice, a touch of liquorice and a nice wild garrigue acidity to keep it flowing, this is just delicious and so uncomplicated.

VINIFICATION / AGING
The harvest is manual. It is sorted, destemmed and stride. The vinification is traditional in the form basic (each grape variety, each plot is vinified separately in order to constitute an entity). The elevage is carried out in a tank for a period of 12 months.
This wine has an intense ruby color with violet reflections. Aromas of ripe black fruits such as blueberry and blackberry, hints of spices, liquorice and of pepper reveal the dominant grape variety. Serve between 14 and 16 ° C with poultry, white meat, steak tartare, terrine.Winemaker's notes (Jun 2021)
Domaine le Sollier
Domaine le Sollier is the most westerly domaine in Duché d'Uzés in the foothills of the Cévennes based in the village of Monoblet. A largely calcareous mountainous terrain, the Cévennes enjoys a Mediterranean climate of hot days, balanced by cool nights.
What marks out le Sollier is that it lies on a fault, so the 12.5 hectares of vineyards, farmed by Nicolas Olivier and his brothers, have a mix of different soils. Sandstone, marl, limestone and dolomitic deposits are well drained and allow Nicolas to produce eye-catching wines of great purity.
Low intervention winemaking with minimal sulphur, these are beautifully detailed wines of great persistence and immense drinkability.
