2012 Domaine de la Solitude

After tasting our way through a lot of red Bordeaux in the quest to find a true blockbuster, we came across the unbelievable 2012 from Domaine de la Solitude. We liked this so much that we immediately took a large parcel into our own stocks, while many of us dug into our own pockets to take a case - it really is that good! Rich, deep and phenomenally well-balanced it punches well above its price point and, like many 2012s, is already showing surprisingly well. Domaine de la Solitude is a Pessac chateau with great pedigree. Now under the same ownership as Domaine de Chevalier and boasting some similar characteristics to its impressive stablemate, no expense is spared in the vineyard or winery and the quality is clear in the bottle. A sensational Claret, this comes very highly recommended by the team at F+R.
