2021 Domaine le Sollier
|Grapes||Viognier, Sauv Blanc, Vermentino|
We were really excited to discover the wines of Domaine le Sollier last year. A relative newcomer in terms of property (est 2006) and appellation having been granted AOC status in 2013. Nestled up in the Cevennes foothils with Dolomite terroir, limestone & sandy soils, the Olivier brothers are farming 12.5 hectares organically and with little intervention. No need to worry about funky fruit & dark wines, these boys know what they are doing, crafting fresh & bright whites. The 2021 Les Alisiers is freshness personified, laser sharp precision, a blend of Viognier, Vermentino, Sauvignon & Chardonnay, it is a real summer dazzler, white pear, lemon pith and a chalky elderflower finish. The 2020 sold out in the blink of an eye, the 2021 will almost certainly do the same. L&S (May 2022)

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.
