Domaine de la Solitude Pessac Leognan Rouge 2018
|Brand||Domaine de la Solitude|
Performing nicely, the 2018 Domaine De La Solitude (Pessac-Léognan) has gained more elegance and finesse since I tasted it from barrel, offering a complex, layered style as well as medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannins, integrated acidity, and outstanding length. With lots of cherry and currant fruits along with notes of white truffle, green tobacco, and cedar, it's going to continue drinking nicely for at least 15 years.
Cellar Selection. This wine comes from an estate owned by a religious order and managed by Domaine de Chevalier. Luscious black fruits are sophisticated and full. Embedded in the black fruits, the tannins are just showing their potential as the wine opens out. This will be a fine wine with time. Drink from 2025.
Tight, sleek style, with red currant, loganberry and bitter cherry notes streaming through flecked with savory and red tea hints along the way. Nice flash of iron on the well-focused finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2034. 10,000 cases made.
The Domaine de la Solitude 2018 Rouge is deep garnet-purple colored and opens with aromas of cedar, earth, blackberries, cassis and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate is generous and muscular with firm, grainy tannins and a long, earthy finish.
