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, Cévennes enjoys a mediterranean climate of hot days, balanced by cool nights.
What marks out le Sollier is that it lays on a fault and so the 12.5 hectares of vineyards, farmed by Nicolas Olivier and his brothers, have a mix of different soils. Sandstone, Marl, limestone 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.
