This wine has such a sense of place, the very first sip transports you to a hilltop village in the summer sunshine! We've been on the look out for some wines from Duché d'Uzès for sometime. An intriguing blend of 50% Viognier 20% Vermentino & 30% Sauvignon, the nose is so inviting, bright and fresh, full of vibrant citrus, melon and mandarin, there is a core of bright aromatic citrus fruits in the mouth, but you can feel the vibrant minerality absolutely sing, this is just a joy to drink and ever so moreish. L&S (Oct 2021)

CHARACTERISTICS
This pale yellow wine with crystalline looks presents a very aromatic nose with notes of citrus and flowers. The palate is round and consistent with its aromas of flowers and fruits. Serve between 8 and 10°C with citrus scallops, fresh goat cheese, tagliatelle with truffles
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.
